Cycle Montana Road Tour

Written by Jennifer on . Posted in adventure, blog, Events, Historical, Travel

We often miss so much of the world that surrounds us because we are moving too fast.  It’s not just the sights to take in, but the culture, the history of the land, nature; the circle of life that unnoticeable to most of us fuels our land and our bodies. Sometimes it’s a good idea to slow down for a moment to actually slow down and appreciate all of these things.

When I was searching for upcoming events of US 191 today, this came up on the Bozeman Chamber of Commerce page:

Starting June 21st , spend a week bicycling through the scenic valleys and over the mountain passes of western and southwestern Montana. Beginning in Adventure Cycling’s hometown of Missoula, follow the Bitterroot River upstream before climbing over Lost Trail and Chief Joseph passes. After crossing the Continental Divide, descend into the Big Hole Valley, a basin that is so sparsely populated that you may occasionally feel as if you’ve ridden back in time a hundred years.

All I can say is, what a great idea! I hope I see many people out there participating in this fun, amazing, eye-opening experience! bitteroot river montana

Christmas Stroll in Bozeman, MT

Written by Jennifer on . Posted in blog, Events, Travel

Every year a very small stretch of US 191 is closed in the city of Bozeman MT for their annual Christmas Stroll.  This is an enchanting event for all ages with activities ranging from visiting Santa, shopping, listening to live music, and so much more that the downtown businesses of Bozeman have to offer.
For the 32nd year the city will block traffic and detour down the one way streets on either side of  US 191/Main st.  For those willing to travel, this is one of the best small town events in America.  Each year offers different unique perspectives on how the Gallatin valley has changed and continues to provide an incredible community through quality people despite the growth.
During my college years at Montana State, the Christmas stroll was often seen as a last big night before having to save money to get home for Christmas or to get presents for loved ones.  Often times the gifts were found while looking through shops windows walking with friends, while enjoying a cup of hot cocoa and peppermint schnaps.  As we would walk the streets with friends, couples, families, and plenty of other smiling faces, everyone would fall back to simpler times when life wasn’t about technology, but about community.  Caroling, meeting new people, listening to music, shopping, and being a part of something larger than the commercial aspect of Christmas.
This will always my favorite night to be in Bozeman.  No matter the weather or the circumstance, the Christmas Stroll will always bring people from all over into one community no matter what their background may be, and that to me is worth the trip to go back as often as I am able.
 Words from a local Montana resident received on US191.com/contact or info@us191.com. Let us know if you have something to blob about!
