Early spring Bitterroot morning.

Someone walked through on their way to a rave.
A short “over the ridge” hike quickly turned into run up a very steep slope to the top of a 8200ft peak because we saw a wolverine. This was one of the less eventful days this summer, but very easily one of my all time favorites. #MontanaWild
I leave these two for an extra long weekend tomorrow. It will be the longest I've been away from Livi so it will be a bittersweet trip. She changes so quickly she'll probably be a whole new character by the time I return! Time refuses to slow down these days. #liviloveslife

Missoula Farmer's Market. I bought snap peas and wanted to buy a big braid of garlic because having plentiful garlic is important.
I spent the winter waiting for these guys to migrate back into Lamar Valley.
Hiking high above Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park. Bummed to see another fire ravaging through this area and burning people homes and historic buildings.

Holland Peak
I wasn’t able to capture many shooting stars during the meteor shower, but I didn’t leave feeling disappointed🌌
Back roads are delightful, no matter what state you’re in. #westernnotmid
Don’t take that fresh mountain air for granted.

So happy that I got to hike Hidden Lake before the Going to the Sun road closed! Wildfire season is the worst. Thanks to all the brave firefighters out there! 💕#montanamoment #findyourpark #hikelikeagirl #camplikeagirl
The real star at the rodeo.
Soaking up the Montana sun ☀️ . I was trying out some #advancedselfie technique of @sorelleamore but then I walked too far from my camera and my remote disconnected. 😂 Luckily @aalind89 pressed the camera button a few times for me. 💕 . . . . . #Montana #radmontana #montanagram #montanamoment #bigskycountry #lastbestplace #montanalove #montanaisforbadasses #mtadventure #visitmontana #visitbigsky #mtbigskyseries #montanawild #bestofmontana #distinctlymontana
I went to a night photography workshop held by @f11photobozeman last weekend. It was a new moon and the hight of the perseids meteor shower. There was some smoke and light pollution but I learned a lot and managed to catch a few meteors in this one.

Riding off into the sunset before vacation. I'll be in Minnesota with Lulu for the rest of the week taking some much needed time to slow down and get out of town.

Montana summer days.
Yesterday was a very sad, scary day for all of us who live near Glacier National Park, and for all of the people who visit the park and are planning their visit and wedding! But do you know how big and beautiful this park is? Big enough that when there is an awful fire raging where you were planning on getting married, a 45 min drive the other direction and you have this view. It's a lot like love. Sometimes our lives and our love don't fit our expectations, but a little adaptation and change of perspective and we can find beauty that surpasses what we were first dreaming of. <3 . . . #prayforglacier #glacierfires #mariannewiestphotography #mariannewiestphoto #montanaweddingphotographer #elope #weeloped #loveauthentic #glacierweddingphotographer #montanaphotographer #montanaweddingphotographer #montana #glacierelopement #glaciernationalpark #gnp #bestofmontana #naturalmontana #bestweddingshots #glacierNPS #playglacier #intimateweddings #exploreglacier #elopementlove

...and we fell asleep under the flying stars 💫 . We camped at Revenue Flats for my first time. The desert feel of dry grass, fields of sage and warm air, it was a different taste of Montana. After some relaxed rock climbing and cooking dinner, the evening was warm enough to sleep with all the tent windows open, including the top windows. So we got into the tent, and after seeing a few shooting stars from the Perseid meteor shower, I fell asleep. ⭐️ Time like this remind me that I am grateful for this life and my opportunities to enjoy it. ⭐️ Sony a6000 16mm ISO 3200 f 3.5 30 sec . . . . #perseidmeteorshower #perseids #astrophotography #rooftoptent #campeveryday #ourcamplife #campingofficial #campingvibes #campingcollective #campoften #camp4pix #thetentcommandments #tentdiaries #campinghub #montana #radmontana #montanagram #montanamoment #bigskycountry #lastbestplace #montanalove #montanaisforbadasses #mtadventure #visitmontana #visitbigsky #mtbigskyseries #montanawild #bestofmontana #distinctlymontana
Fire season has been shipping in a lot of smoke recently
I don't do these "introductions" very often and, as a result, people understandably think my name is Piper. 💁🏼 • I'm Briana 😊 Piper is my cat. •I work in HR 40 hours/week but in my spare time I like to pretend I'm a photographer. • My boyfriend (@itsmekelly40 ) and I met through @instagram. •We have 9.5 horses, 6 goats, 3 dogs, 3-ish cats, and one mini donkey named Garth Brooks. ❤️ • My favorite books are the Harry Potter series, Jodi Picoult is my favorite author, Friends is my favorite tv show, and Man From Snowy River is my favorite movie. It's nice to meet you! 💕
Open Door Policy...at Garnet Ghost Town in Garnet, Montana.
Our wildlife sightings were surprisingly slim this time around, but we did see these sweet (and confused) deer frolicking on the side of the road. #westernnotmid
Lower Rumble Creek Lake
Time to get out there and lay it all out because summer is slowly winding down.
My brother and I went adventuring in the mountains today! We found some beautiful places. ⛰❤️
This was our view a mere 7 weeks ago. Now the western shore of Lake McDonald (left of frame) is engulfed in flames and the air choked with smoke. So sad to see the pictures of the inferno today. Hopefully the firefighters and park staff keep safe while fighting these blazes. Forest fires are obviously a natural part of the health of the ecosystem, but it is still sad to see the destruction in the places we love. . . . #glaciernationalpark #findyourpark #nps #nationalparks #usinterior #nationalpark #visitmontana #montana #keepitwild #liveoutdoors #getoutside #optoutside #neverstopexploring #goexplore #forestfire #glacier_national_park #outsideisfree #lakemcdonald #letsgosomewhere #kidsinnature #nature #landscape #naturalmontana #themontanascene #bestofmontana #lastbestplace #montanagram #adventureculture #nationalparksgeek #ig_naturelovers . 📷: @savydaveoutdoors
We are missing these views right now due to the fires 🔥 . Are there fires where you are? Smoky sunsets?
