Flathead Valley, seen from Whitefish Mountain Resort

Tuesday, January 12, 2010


This is a view looking out over the Flathead Valley from Whitefish Mountain Resort (formerly Big Mountain) in Whitefish, Montana, at something-like-sunset. This is where I’ll be in a couple of days. I am extremely happy about this. The weather isn’t looking like it’ll be perfect (it’ll be mostly cloudy with a chance of only a half inch of snow or so each day), but it will still be fantastic. Because I will be there, and I make everything fantastic. There’s a lesson in there for the rest of you.

Last time I was in Whitefish, I only had a point and shoot camera with me. Because at the time that’s all I owned. This time though, I’m bringing the big guns. Actually, I’m only bringing one big gun. I was originally intending to bring two big guns, intending to use my *old* SLR (the XT) just in case I fell on it. I didn’t want to risk the fancy new one. But, my buddy Dan is borrowing it, and I was too lazy to ask for it back. So I may just have an excuse to spend more money when I get home, we’ll see. But that’s the real reason why I have mixed feelings about the weather. I’m afraid of boring light. Oh well. I’m sure I’ll still have plenty of fun. Do you even realize how cheap the beer is out there?! Oh man, it’s heaven on earth, I swear.

I’m still planning on putting up another post tomorrow before I leave, but then that’ll be it until at least Tuesday of next week, so you’d better enjoy it!

Notes: Canon PowerShot S500 (Point and shoot). 1/250s, f/7.1.
