I hung out an extra day to take a breather from skiing in Missoula, MT while waiting for Andy, to meet me at Snowbowl, the next day. I had a great time getting to know the town, and I managed a little more authentic experience, thanks for Mark, and his horses, who were kind enough to show me around via horseback. It was an unexpected surprise, and I was able to overcome my own doubt that I could ride a horse after so many years.
At the bar later, unfortunately there were few snapshots taken (maybe fortunately), Ada, who is in school there, showed me around and introduced me to Charlie B's, the local watering hole, which is my kind of bar (2$ well drinks and 1$ PBR), cash only, just like prattys. I left the dog at home for that one. Thanks to all for showing me Missoula!
