Spring Break Road Trip to Red Lodge, Montana

Today, I'm sharing a few of the wide open Montana spaces my husband and I love so much. We hit the road recently to visit family in Red Lodge, Montana, and I tried to capture some of the scenery on my phone camera through the car windows as we sped along the highway.

  The Madison Mountain Range east of Ennis, Montana.

 Buffalo grazing near the pass between Ennis and Bozeman, Montana.

 Big Sky Country.

 The Absaroka Mountain Range south of Livingston, Montana.

 The Crazies north of Livingston, Montana.

Road trips aren't for everyone, but my husband and I cherish the long hours spent alone together talking about anything and everything as we watch the beautiful scenery pass by. 

How about you? Do you like to travel by car? Have you taken any spring road trips this year?

How about a spring break link party?! Join me at


  1. I love to travel! I had so much fun when we moved back to CA from NY when Jim retired ~ just me, the cat, and the road!

    Don't get blown away today!!

  2. Wow Laurel, so nice to see the Big Sky country:-) I've been to Red Lodge years ago and hiked the Bear Tooth mountains, I think?? I would love to come out and visit family. My uncle and aunt ranched for years near Hardin, then moved to Columbus so those photos bring back wonderful memories:-)


  3. Lindo blog, amei suas postagens!Maravilha!
    Siga-me e pegue o meu selinho!!!


    Beijos Marie.

  4. Wow, that scenery is gorgeous, Laurel! That's an area of the country I haven't been to yet. So beautiful! I enjoy car trips as long as they aren't too long. 5-6 hours is probably my max before I start getting antsy! Great post and thank you so much for linking up to the party!

  5. Beautiful! thanks for sharing and reminding me of how breathtaking Montana is!

  6. Wow, I bet that scenery is breath-taking in person! I love to travel by car. You miss so much by flying (although if you're pressed for time, it works) and I love seeing what each different area looks like. Thanks for sharing!

  7. We had to Montana a couple of years ago and it is a beautiful state! Some of the local people told us that it is mostly owned by people in Hollywood or other multimillionaires. I love all the open spaces one can see when travelling there. You got lovely photos!

  8. The skies and landscape is just amazing! Makes me think of the song "America the Beautiful" :)

  9. Gorgeous photographs. You have a special talent for choosing the right areas to photograph. You could compose a book! I also love your house and gardens. I'm a child of the 50's and Sunday drives were special family times. I was an only child at the time so there was no fighting. I remember every incidence that happened

  10. Never been to that part of the country, but my, the views are just utterly amazing! One more for my bucket list!
