Butte Montana has great bones and is an awesome historic town. The draw for us was the International Folk Festival which was fantastic, fun and full of great music as you can imagine! I listened to great Chicago blues, rockabily, celtic, mariachi, and great old fashioned rock and roll at an outdoor venue and was right up front dancing of course. We were hits at the farmers mkt. and I sold quite a bit! The right photo is dinner Saturday nite at the M & M (a classic in Butte) which is like 112 years old! The left photo is our combined booth - Heidi and I set up at 3 different places each day and still had a fantastic weekend. We both needed a little r & r after this venue. We got it in Missoula . . . the next stop on the tour!

Today I am in Bozeman Montana. Last night was a KOA campground with a hot spring right next to it - that was awesome. It was about 45 degrees last night but the airstream was warm and cozy. I love Bozeman and got the most fabulous massage and finally found an internet cafe that works! Yippeeee. 11 days on the road and doing great! We are off to Butte tomorrow morning to set up art and jewelry at a place called Gamers Cafe, then Saturday at the farmers market, the back to Gamers. Should be hilariously interesting indeed. We've printed up flyers to pass out at the Folk Festival, there's suppose to be 40,000 people at the festival so lets hope Gamers is jammin'. On the Montana roads . . . to be continued.

The first show in Livingston Montana on the July 4th weekend was a huge success! I have sold out greeting cards and prints are almost gone. Had a great 3 day trip on the way here. Got to drive thru Zion and Yellowstone. Beautiful country indeed. Having so much fun and wanted to share a few photo's.
Heidi and I had so much fun driving up in the 66 Airstream! Here is a photo of us right outside Zion National Park in Utah. On the left is the view at sunset from our back patio at the house we are staying at outside Livingston, Montana.
