The Festive Alley

“Festive” isn’t generally the first word I come up with when I think about Butte, which is why these lights hanging on a jaunty line in an alley were a bit of a surprise.

Colorful Butte

I know that Colorado has claimed “colorful” as their nickname, but don’t you think Butte is offering some pretty strong competition?

Three Feet and Two Chairs

It was a calm morning in Bozeman – the pool became a mirror.

(Fun story: it was soon to be less calm, as my other camera took a bit of a lens-first dive onto a concrete floor. The floor won. But Bozeman Camera and Repair saved the day – and the vacation – and we were soon on the road with a brand new lens.)

Row on Row

This site has been a national cemetery since 1879; the original designation, three years after the battle of Little Bighorn, was intended to protect graves of the 7th Cavalry troopers buried there. In 1886, The site was proclaimed National Cemetery of Custer’s Battlefield Reservation to include burials of other campaigns and wars. The name has been since been shortened to “Custer National Cemetery.” (from Wikipedia.)

No way to be knowin’

Here’s a detail from yesterday’s photo of the Memory Tree. There was something about those buttons…

The title of this post comes from the Cowboy Celtic song I linked to a couple of days ago:

Just who fell first and who was last
There’s no way to be knowin’

And in the background you can see the markers where Custer and some of his troops fell.
