Kootenai Falls and Family offer up wonderful memories-plus 2 things
I think once you scroll down and see the falls you will agree that the sign with the warning seems dumb but then there are always those people that try stupid things or I guess just do not think....would you go swimming in this water????
Guess who-kicking back and enjoying nature and a beautiful day.
Kootenai Falls is something quite wonderful in Libby Montana. My cousin and I met at my Aunts house. My aunt is facing terminal lung cancer and still quilts and embellish's every day. The three of us played rummicube and watched "best in show" and talked about life and things that meant something to us, like family. It was lovely. Before I left to go home, my cousin wanted to show me Kootenai Falls. We went on a little hike and I really enjoyed the beauty and sounds, shapes, colors and textures of what Montana offered up. Our Grandparents lived on the Kootenai River in British Columbia so it was fun to see the US side of things too.
Beautiful moss and trees everywhere...nature at it's best! If you haven't been to Montana you need to go. Steinbeck called Montana "my darling."
My cousin high up on a big bluff- me down below where it is safe
I am not sure if this photo shows how high up and rickety this swinging bridge is...though it is beautiful
The sign announced that only 5 people could get in the bridge at a time....I stayed off as there were others and I wasn't taking any chances above that water! My cousin is younger and braver
My cousin Kristi who is by the sign announcing Kootenai Falls in Libby, Montana-gorgeous and loud and mighty
Imagine LOUD flowing water that is gushing and moving and rushing.....
Two things, comment and sign up for followers for a chance to win fabric. And if you have ordered anything from me, I am waiting for a new machine to arrive. My old machine cannot be used any longer. Thank you for being patient.
