  • Montana east of the mountains

    Rick Graetz, The University of Montana|Updated Nov 17, 2022

    CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEK With the exception of some stretches of the Yellowstone, most of the rivers of the high plains are mellow - no whitewater excitement, just serenity, solitude, beauty and a sense of the past.

    Susan Metcalf|Updated Nov 17, 2022

We old timers well remember the horrible winter of 1978-79 which followed a really nice fall right up until November 9, 1978 when winter hit and did not leave until March 1979.
