Hello ‘Blue Sky’ friends & friends to be! We are so excited for this spring & summer season! Our grass is greener than ever before, the Aspen Trees are leafing out & the snow is melting in the high country.
The Beartooth Highway is scheduled to open next Friday the 26th! We took a peek at the snow from The Wyoming side a few days ago & the snow walls are epic! Yellowstone National Park is fully open (Dunraven Pass opens the 26th)! We were there a few days ago & saw Grizzly Bears, Black Bears & cubs, Elk, Moose, Fox, Bison & their cute little red dog babies, Wolves & more. This is an amazing time to visit!
Here at ‘Blue Sky’ we have nesting Sandhill Cranes & Geese, Elk, Coyotes, Moose, Fox & this year, a Grizzly Bear. We also enjoy an incredible variety of birds, for those bird watchers out there. And we have Great Horned Owls nesting near the cabins. Papa owl usually perches on The Forget-me-not Cabin. Since we are close to Yellowstone, we are fortunate to share the same wildlife. But here, we don’t have the crowds & our wildlife tends to be natural & undisturbed. Whitetail Deer have often had their fawns right near the cabins.
After the floods last year, many bridges & trails were damaged. But many have re-opened, and in Yellowstone as well. The amount of time, effort & devotion to preserving & sharing our incredible slice of heaven here in The Big Sky Country, was unparalleled. You will find an adventure like no other, an experience like no other & a peace & solitude like no where else. Many of our guests comment on how their experience here at ‘Blue Sky’ has changed them & it was an experience that will stay with them forever.
This year, we have more availabilty, so we invite you to come & stay with us. Our motto is: If not now…when?
Cheers! Tammy & Kevin
It’s only 24 days to Spring but here in Montana we can still get snow & plenty of it! It’s a beautiful time of year with longer days ahead & a slow transition to Spring. In a few weeeks our Sandhill Cranes will return with their distinct calls & dances, Bears will start to emerge from their dens (the boars emerge first), The Bull Elk are dropping their antlers & starting growth on their new set, The Whitetail Deer will shed their winter attire for a different shade of lighter wear & The Canada Geese will start scoping out our pond for their new nest & another bunch of bobbing, yellow goslings. It’s an active time of year for all the wildlife & the migrating ones which will return to their Summer home in a few weeks.
Spring brings a refreshing sense & smell of renewal & this year a new hope for mankind. We are looking forward to Spring & to Spring-ing forward on the 14th! We are also looking ahead to Summer, Fall & Winter this year with a new excitement & desire for normalcy. And praying that soon we will all be getting together with family & friends like the good ol days! We hope you will find some time to come & visit us & enjoy our Spring Snows.
We managed a quick escape to Yellowstone for a few days of wildlife photography. Yellowstone is amazing right now with spring babies everywhere! Grizzly cubs of the year (coy) Black Bear Cubs, Bison calves (red doggies), Pronghorn fawns, Sandhill Crane colts, Elk calves & so much more! We travelled over the Beartooth Highway where the snow walls are epic. The days were long & sunny with afternoon thunderstorms & rainbows. If you are planning a trip to Yellowstone let us help you plan. We have extensive knowledge of The Park & it’s wildlife & would love to show you our favorite places and up to date animal sightings. Of course, you can see pretty much everything here at ‘Blue Sky’ too. Even Bison at a nearby ranch. We hope you’ll join us for an up close & personal wildlife experience!
