Sculptures of Bygone Days

In Darby, Montana stands a store the length of a city block that offers everything from candy to clothing to antiques to these beautiful sculptures.  I love how the artist molded such fine detail into the metal.

One T-Rex took a tumble.

You can’t miss the place; it’s right along the main drag and well worth checking out!

Photo Fun:Wikiup

 

Wikiup

Here’s a scene right out of a fairy tale, complete with the rustic dwelling of a forest gnome.  Actually, it’s a wikiup someone built around a tree in the Sapphire Mountains.  I had never seen one before so I went over for a closer look.

At first I thought the opening too small to get through, but I got in with no trouble.  And the interior afforded enough space for two people to lie down in.  Not my idea of a Motel 6, but I’ll bet it beats sleeping outside in the rain!  Overall, very neat!

Photo Fun: Douglas Fir with a Tutu

IMG_5009 SapphireDougFirTutu 06_05

We chanced upon this odd-looking fellow on a recent trek in the Sapphire Mountains: a stately Douglas fir sporting a ruffled skirt.  At first we thought it was mistletoe, but a closer inspection revealed a low cluster of branches.
