I went up to the empty base of Big Sky Resort to walk around as a storm rolled in and pay homage to my absolute favorite ski mountain, pondering the snow to come and the season. Lone Peak is so fierce without snow on it, although it is still daunting with snow when you ride the tram up, but at least it looks somewhat skiable!
A cocky little copper fox ran across the base area of the Swifty lift & calmly stopped before me, looking me in the eye, owning it. But it won't be his for much longer - 43 days to go til opening day!

...And then, with it still raining in the Meadow, the storm clouds broke in the west for an epic sunset, with Lone Peak still in menacing shadows. So beautiful it looked like a Bierstadt painting - Big Sky, you never cease to amaze!!! #bigskyresort #montana #whereeverythingsbigger #wildwest #
What I am used to doing in the mountains up here, although this is us goofing around on the lower slopes on a stormy day. #bigskyresort #skiparadise #powder
And then there were two. Mia intrepidly took on the aptly named Storm Castle hike in the canyon, although she pulls like a 50 pd sled dog on the down hills. At home with less toothy wildlife and attractive little animals to distract her she goes off leash when we hike - something to work on.
