    Just wondering if you’ve been reading my blog – Have you ever visited Montana? If not you must come to the Bitterroot Valley, it’s Montana’s best – the Valley is small only 10-15 miles across and abt. 125 miles long – best weather in Montana – usually our winters are mild and summers not to warm. Great hiking, fishing, cross crounty skiing, or just enjoying the wild life and what Montana has to offer.

    Hello Linda,
    We stayed with you last June on our way to Spokane. Not long enough, just one night, but we’ll return. We love to make the trip from Denver to Spokane through the Bitterroots – beautiful country. May I put your blog on my blogroll?

    Hi Nancy! Thanks for visiting I’m always happy to “meet” another travel writer based in Colorado. Who told you about us at your reception last night? Always happy to learn of new fans… thanks!

    Saw former co-workers in Sun City West recently and thought of you and Bob. Still owe you for the meal when Wiley last (?)passed through Colorado. I’ll call when we are in Denver and maybe we can share some travel tales.

    Is this the Nancy Coleman Yackel, Champaign High School Class of 1961? If so, I wanted to remind you of our upcoming Reunion, July 23rd, in case you might not have seen it.

    This is the Nancy Coleman Yackel from CHS Class of ’61. Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend the 50th because of a commitment we made more than a year ago. The weekend sounds like great fun, enjoy!
