Bozeman sits in the middle of some magnificent mountain ranges: the Bridger Range, Gallatin National Forest, the Absarokas and the Spanish Peaks. Each area is slightly different, but the one common denominator is a splendid mix of trees, creating a fall display of color offset by the deep greens of the coniferous trees.

It’s not hard to find huge patches of orange, yellow and red leaves, and you have the option of hiking or driving through the splendor. Look for aspen, larch, and cottonwood for the golden hues, birch, and maple for red and orange colors, and keep watch for the chokecherries whose leaves turn a deep shade of purple.

I have a special place in my heart for bookstores. When I was young, I had a real concern about the world running out of books and music. I had to rationally remind myself that as long as people kept writing, we wouldn’t run out. I love to peruse the titles, read the back cover and check out the author. I don’t always find something I can’t live without, but am thrilled when I do.

Bozeman was founded in August of 1864 by John Bozeman, a frontiersman from Georgia who led wagon trains west to the gold fields in the Montana Territory along the Bozeman Trail, a cutoff of the Oregon Trail. The town served as a supply hub for prospectors looking to strike it rich near Bannack and Virginia City. John Bozeman himself was a business-minded man who met a tragic ending at the hands of the Blackfeet Indians, though some historians have theorized he was killed by a jealous business partner, quite the wild west mystery. Bozeman's rich history is filled with interesting stories, larger than life characters, and historical sites that you can still visit today.
