Wow I cannot believe how fast the time is going…It was just May yesterday right?
Summer in Missoula reminds me why I live here. The area is full of all variety of outdoor activities, so much so that you have too many things to do and you cannot do them all! From outdoor concerts down in Caras park, right at the rivers edge, to our semi-pro baseball team, The Osprey (did I mention there field is also right on the Clark Fork river banks?), to grabbing an inner tub and a cool beverage and floating one of the 3 major rivers running through town. If you do not feel like getting in the water yourself you can watch from the observation deck kayak’s on Brennan’s wave. That is just a snip-it of what all there is to do.
The people of Missoula are what make this place great! It is a very giving community that likes to combine the outdoor fun with fundraising for the local non-profit groups. We have our bike for shelters, where it promotes families biking through the Missoula valley and at the same time raising awareness and funds for the local Missoula Watson’s Children’s Center that cares for small children that are removed from unsafe homes. This is just one of the many events that helps out our Missoula community while promoting fitness and the great outdoors.
Missoula has also hit it off with our Marathon that is held in July. It is so fun to see people coming in from all areas, but more so, to watch local Missoulians going out and completing a race they never would have thought they could do, or would travel to participate in.
This is why it is so hard to find time to blog…with the early sunrises and late sunsets who wants to be at a computer monitor when there is fun to be had! So hopefully you are enjoy the summer as much as we are….if not jump in a car/plane/train/bike whatever it takes and come enjoy Missoula with me!
