Are you like me and moved to Bozeman not too long ago? Today I decided that a road trip to Whitehall was in order.

Fifty-nine miles from Bozeman you will find this unique little town, with a population of less than 20,000 people. When I first pulled in I noticed how many vehicles had mountain bikes hanging from them...I think there is a trail I need to find!

Salute is  on the way home and it will bring more snow. What have you heard about the whale? What do you know about it? Is it a family tradition in your vehicle?

A whale is a symbol of good fortune and well being. Whether it is there for that, or for more snow, I am…
