7/13/11 – Featured in THE WORLD AS WE SEE IT Group.
This is a view, looking across Whitefish Lake (Whitefish, Montana, USA) to the Baypoint Resort, with Big Mountain and the Ski Resort behind it. I remember a time when we only had tourist season from the end of November through March. I would get laid off my waitressing job in the summer. Now Whitefish has become a year round tourist attraction.
This was my first home when I moved to Montana. My parents lived in the house across the street from where I took this picture. Growing up in Hollywood, I felt like I had found Heaven here.
I took this photo at our family reunion on Saturday, July 9. Notice that there is still snow on Big Mountain. My mother-in-law used to wait until the snow was completely gone from the mountain before planting her garden. This was usually by the beginning of June. The water level in the lake is so high this year that you can’t see the beach across the lake.
I’m entering this in the Summer Vacation Near the Beach challenge in the PostCard Style group.
