Cobalt Lake


June 22, 2013

Kara, Julia, Janie, Alicia, Melanie, and I took off for an adventure in the Two Medicine area to Cobalt Lake. We left from the Two Medicine Lake Boat Launch and ate lunch near Rockwell Falls, which were absolutely gushing with all the snow melt. The trail turned to a slushy mucky mess after a few miles, but we were not deterred. Eventually it became completely snow covered, with no apparent trail. Good thing for a fisherman in front of us, or we would have had no clue where we were heading.  At Cobalt Lake we made fast friends with the fisherman, named Olen. He was working on a ranch in eastern Montana, and a little lonely. We chatted with him on the return trip, and shared a delicious feast with him at Serrano’s. Some of us decided it would be a good idea to run part of the trail back, unfortunately it also meant that we sped right past a moose swimming in the pond. The others who weren’t in such a hurry to get to the car stopped and watched the moose for a bit. cobalt lake, glacier park

Hiking Journal

I am starting a hiking journal here, I hope you don’t mind. I will be posting details of my hikes and adventures along with photos. It will be a nice reference for me to look back on, and a good resource for other people looking to hike!


North to Alaska


Today I am leaving for an adventure to Alaska. I am excited to kayak between the icebergs, roam on the glaciers, and climb in the mountains. Hopefully we get to see some wildlife and catch some fish!

Flathead Cherry

I have been working with Sweet Peaks to create flavor graphics for social media. Here is one I was really pleased with. Sweet Peaks uses local cherries blended with Montana sweet cream to make the most marvelous cherry ice cream. Throw in some chocolate chips, and bamm. Drool ensues.

It feels weird to use a cell phone picture, but since this will be posted to Instagram and Facebook, I didn’t think it was a big deal. What do you think about cell phone photos for social media design work?

Spring is finally showing its face around here today, and I am ready for summer, getting my sandals & tank tops out! And planning summer hiking/camping trips! We are planning to go backpacking into the Bob Marshall Wilderness, should be an adventure, as most of the people going are first time backpackers! It’s amazing how difficult it is to coordinate 7 different schedules, we are struggling to find a weekend that works for everyone involved!

Happy Easter!

EasterEggs   To get in the Easter spirit, I decorated some eggs, had brunch with some friends, and gave each other Easter baskets. It was a fantastic way to spend the lovely day.

Been noticing lots of fantastic navy pins over on Pinterest lately. I wish that our sky would start turning a little more of a blue color, gray is nice, but getting old. It is the first day of spring, but in Montana, there isn’t much sign of spring poking its head out anywhere. On the plus side, there should be lots of fresh snow on the mountain this weekend! It’s Retro Day on Sat, I am wearing my vintage down vest, along with some nasty old goggles (that I can’t really see out of, they’re so scratched).
