Monday Memories

Hi Everyone!

Another day of memories. For a few years M and I lived remote in the Bitterroot MT of N. Idaho. We lived off the land and only once a year or so we would travel into town for staples. It was one of the best times of my life. Once we decided to move to a place with people and things it was way out of any town. We both obtained jobs at a resort and still lived up on the MT. side. It was very difficult to move into a cabin for winter. The confinement was suffocating.  Here are some photos that, for me, bring back such fun and wonderful memories. This was in the 1980's.  Happy memory day!

Just a fun day me and my dog.

We had Grouse that night for  dinner.

I couldn't wait to get off work and outside.

This was can shooting.

Spring was here.

Just a happy dog day.

Honor and integrity in art, in life.


  1. Gosh Nicole, I can't imagine living off the land like that. I'm sure I'd starve to death, since I am NOT a fisher person and am only good with a pistol. I can't believe the signs in the resort where you worked. I haven't seen cigarette ads like that in years. Maybe I don't go to places where they sell them, though. You have certainly lived a very fulfilling and gifted life. I hope it continues in 2020, too. Happy New Year, dear.

  2. Elizabeth,it was the 80's and people still smoked in public places. Also this was a convenience store at the resort top side by the road so lots of locals and tourists. It is where I really learned how nasty some tourists can be. LOL

  3. those were nice memories !!!
    greetings Elke

  4. Well, you old hippie you! That wouldn't be my idea of a good time. I'm a city girl through and through. When the Disaster Times come and we all have to fend for ourselves, I'll be one of the first ones shot and eaten.

  5. Wow, what great memories! I love the photos! I don't know if I could live off the land like that!
