First women to…remember

This month, a little pop-up under the Google search bar included a link to a video commemorating Women’s History Month.

The video went on to highlight some feminine firsts, ranging from coronavirus vaccination research to scaling peaks.

Covid man

An imposing figure is tucked in a corner of Ramshorn View Estates – standing a full 10 feet tall with beer bottle buttons, an airplane bottle smile, and a corncob pipe made out of a Beehive Brewery crowler can. The colossal Covid Man raises his Willie’s Distillery bottle to the sky with his ski arm.

Community of Seth

Seth Griggs-Ryan was the first Not So Average Joe, partly thanks to his kind disposition and wry humor and partly because of his quirky pursuit to be the human billboard of Big Sky – he negotiated free food and drinks from area establishments by getting their logos tattooed on his arms.
