Well, I finally got the best of the best of all the pictures I took over Christmas weekend down in the Madison Valley. It really is one of my favorite places on earth. Before we moved to Montana, my family spent all summer there every year fly fishing with friends who had been living there for several years.

It's a special place, with special people. Tough people with kind hearts and the sense of being a real neighbor that most people do not possess. If I ever disappear for an extended period of time, check the Madison Valley. You'll probably find me there with an elk hair caddis. - Michelle
