Big Sky Sunset on the Ulm-Pishkun ~

hi everyone ~  i hope you've had a good week!  while extra long work days have been taking up alot of my time ~{as well as some of my energy {!} ... i've also had the sweet pleasure of co-workers who are also my very good friends!  today i hope you'll take in a bit of montana sky with me... a buffalo jump, as brian and i gave a tour of one of the coolest landscapes in our area that we love to visit.  it's called the ulm-pihkun buffalo jump, and i believe it's been renamed to "the first people's buffalo jump."  a fabulous evening...

it's was one of those evenings... 
a special {and rare} evening with friends. 
the kind you couldn't really plan ~
the kind that grows more precious as you look back ~
knowing it was one that will never be repeated in exactly the same way...
the weather?   pristine. 
the landscape?  serene.  
the skies?  stunning.  
and the light?  amazing.
and my friends?  sweet ~ precious ~ fun!
my friends and co-workers, Darlene and Heather, who came to help me with the jury project at the court. looking off into the that vast prairie from the cliff of the buffalo jump, just west of great falls.  an amazing vista.  and a surprisingly sheer dropoff... just a few yards away...

can you imagine the buffalo hooves thundering?  the whoops and yells of the indians behind them... and so much more.






and a lovely little jackrabbit ... holding perfectly still ... hoping i wouldn't come to close...  aha!  got ya!  captured in my camera lens!
and the wily, range-grown frames for the native prairie version of the teepee.  pretty cool aren't they?  
the light was fading ~ time to say goodbye...
and always a time to give thanks... 
as we treasure this time together and the incredible evening we were graced with.


be blessed!
joining my friends at STUDIO JRU
{of course!} 
and a blessed Friday!!
