Mountainside getaway

by - 18.2.09


I took this shot sometime ago at the outskirts of the city, we were on the train and the mountainside was a sight to behold. The scenery rekindled my love of being somewhere near the mountain, enjoying the simple life just being close to nature.

Being an owner of a city blog and various blog networks exposed to other city daily photoblogs and photography websites. At some point the photos of fellow photobloggers overwhelm me to like and visit the place. Montana and its various mountain ranges is one of those places that has interested me much...(Montana comes from the Spanish word montaña, meaning mountain.)

Montana, also known as the Land of Shining Mountains, takes great pride in its location on the west of US. The Glacier National Park is one of the major tourist attraction there, great for ranching, fishing, relaxing or simply a quiet getaway from the usual city life for a spectacular view of nature (hint: photos!).

There are various Montana Resorts available for lodging. Glacier National Park Lodging offers a wide selection of services located beside one of the largest lakes in Montana, St. Mary.

St. Mary Lodge and Resort is one to consider when going. Boasting of the best dining experience, guests can choose among different types of facilities that best fit their fancies. From Lodges to cabins, tipis, cabins and guest houses, the whole family is ensured to enjoy their stay as each is equipped with furnitures and appliances for your comfort. Rates range from $119 - $450 per night, reasonable I should say, I'd surely book a good package for the whole family.
