Billings Fun Run Will Raise Money for Montana Rescue Mission

Billings Association of Realtors is hosting the Quality of Life Run, August 14th. Sometimes organized running events can be intimidating to non-runners (such as this author). However, the upcoming Quality of Life run is welcoming to participants of all abilities. For starters, there is the two-mile, family-friendly course. If moms with strollers can handle this easy walk/run, anybody can. There is also a 5K course for those who take running a little more seriously.

Consider a Weekend Trip to Helena Montana. You Won’t Regret It.

It seems like Helena gets overlooked as a quick getaway destination for many Montanans, but after a recent overnight visit to the Capitol City, I'm not sure exactly why. Our love affair with destinations like Red Lodge, Whitefish, Chico, etc. are certainly well deserved, but next time you're looking for a fun in-state getaway, you should really give Helena a look.

What to Know Before You Go Huckleberry Picking in Montana

Confession: I'm born and raised in Missoula and I've never been huckleberry picking. I've certainly consumed my share of huckleberries, and all of my in-laws seem to love picking them by the gallons. But when we are all up at the lake together, and there's a choice of being in the lake/laying in the sun, or going out into the woods in 90 degree scorching heat to pick berries, call me crazy, but I've never chosen the latter. Thank Grohl for my in-laws though, Mom/aunts/sisters/brothers all make a mean Huckleberry Buckle!
