The season of daffodils and love is all about the rushing water in the Flathead Valley. Melting snow cascades from every direction out of mountains that surround our area. It is a great time to kayak or white-water raft, mountain bike or hike in the lower elevations and go birding or wildlife viewing. The sun has power when it is out, but it is chilly in the evenings and on the rainy days so bring lots of layers.
Summertime and the living is easy. Fish are jumpin....
