Livingston, Mt….. A little slice of heaven

Howdee all,

We arrived in Livingston a few days ago.

My sister lives here with her family. Livingston is one of my favorite small towns.

You can walk and bike to everything. Wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, Dan Baileys fly fishing shop, health food store and more.

Here we are arriving..before we moved Homey to our spot in front of Sickstas home.livingston_20090819_001

A view from our Homey..How cool is this!

The small footbridge leads to the park…with swimming pool, tennis courts, ball fields, small creek, pond…and over that last tree line…The Yellowstone River.livingston_20090819_006

Sicksta Charlene and I biked to the farmers market in the Park.

One of the downtown streets of Livingstonlivingston_20090820_017Oh..I did some birding too! livingston_20090820_015

Thats all for now..Did a short hike yesterday and saw a few cool birds..will post that when I have time..Too beautiful to be inside.


  1. I have never visited Montana...but this post makes me want to!
    Looks absolutely gorgeous!!
    Those buildings in downtown look so cute! Looking forward to seeing more!!

  2. That place is beautiful! They'd have to hand me my suitcase and push me out the door to leave that view.

    Sometime would you make us a score card of your sisters' locations and how the heck they got so scattered?! I picture everyone piling in the Homey for a cross country drive and whenever someone got cranky, they got shoved out on the spot. :)

    Gorgeous place to be shoved!

  3. Beautiful photos Dawn! Breath-taking country up there. Have a wonderful time!

    Love the post on the Badlands too. Outstanding photo series!

  4. Sure you will enjoy your time with your sister. Looks like a nice small town.
