Stamp A Faire 2012

Good Morning from beautiful Southwestern Montana!!  It's 5:00 am here in Montana and the day looks to be absolutely gorgeous!!!  The coffee is brewed:

and I'm ready to get started!!!!!!

I am so excited for today's Stamp a Faire event!!  I tried to get something together here in Montana but it didn't pan out, so I'm here with my biggest supporter...my sweet hubby!!  My hubby and I have taken to hiking in the beautiful mountains that surround our valley and so I want to share some photos of this gorgeous state that I call home!
 This photo was taken in front of one of the 11 waterfalls that you will find as you hike to Hyalite Lake.  The trailhead is about 30 minutes from home!  We are so blessed here in Southwestern Montana.
 The wildflowers have been especially gorgeous this year!!! I was surprised to find that the paintbrush are a gorgeous shade of pink in the higher elevations!! Sooooo pretty!
 Here's another waterfall from the trail...
 The views were spectacular!!  The hike was 11 miles total with an elevation gain of 1900 ft....it was worth each and every step!!!
 Such a beautiful sight to see!!!
Thanks for taking time to stop by and sharing in the beauty of Montana!! I wish you all a wonderful day and Happy Stamping!!!

Wow indeed beautiful. Love the wildflowers and the waterfall and the alpine tress.

The closest to Montana I've been is the West Yellowstone National Park. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Have a great weekend and SAF.

Beautiful picks - I hope you got to play along!! My friend Jane came over, too bad I didn't know you wanted to get something going, you could have come stamped with us in Malta on the high line!! What a fun day!!
