I'll save the "Oh how wonderful it was to spend time with family and friends" stuff for later but I WILL tell you this: I'm willing to bet a dollar that I saw more wildlife this past Christmas weekend than you. Or anyone else you know.

Deep in the Madison Valley, you'll find just about everything from wolves and moose to antelope and bighorn sheep. Sometimes on your porch.

This week has been so slammed that I haven't had a chance to go through all the pictures I took but I'll do that shortly and post the best ones in a gallery here. I love the Madison Valley anytime of the year but in Winter it seems more special. And quiet.

More soon. -Michelle
