The Ohrmann Museum and Gallery

Jan 28th 2009 — Montana — 12:06 am

We were almost to Drummond and drove out of the sunlight into the fog of the inversion. Everything was coated in ice and we drove by some giant animal sculptures. I made Hilary turn around so we could check it out.

It turns out the place is the residence and museum of an almost 90 year old retired rancher, Bill Ohrmann, who just paints and sculpts now. (I got this information from this article in the Missoulian) The man makes some amazing things. If I was an artist I would like to made an 8 foot tall steel grizzly bear. The ice covered stillness of it all made the experience a little surreal.

The Pintler Scenic Loop

Jan 26th 2009 — Montana — 6:50 pm

Instead of taking 50 miles of I-90 between Bozeman and Missoula you can take a detour on the Pintler Scenic Loop. I have driven past the sign for it countless times, but until last Monday never scoped it out.

The route leaves the interstate at Anaconda and comes back at Drummond. Calling it a loop is a bit of a misnomer, more like a “Scenic C”.

There were some interesting sights along the way, Anaconda is a classic small town. The town of Philipsburg is located on the route, and we stopped briefly to walk around its vibrant (for a town of 900 at least) downtown.

Western North Carolina

These pictures are all from a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and a hike up Mount Pisgah, a Sulock family favorite. It was my last day in North Carolina and it was probably about 65 degrees.
