It’s Not My Montana Anymore

by SteveHulse on September 29, 2016 · 5 comments

I’ve just finished spending two months with my lady, B, in the place that has always held my heart… Montana. The state where I grew up, the state where I learned the life lessons that would sustain me… the state that waited for me to pursue my career, and welcomed me home when the career […]


A Puget Sound Paradise

       A Different Kind Of Paradise           Somewhat separate from the madness of the rest of our country, the Pacific Northwest is a place of diversity, charm and power. From many parts of the state of Washington one can see from a single spot large bodies of water, lowlands, […]


Stretching Indian Summer

As we all know in the northern hemisphere, winter is long and summer is short. Brilliant, eh? I know… it’s the big reason why more people don’t live up in these parts year round. It’s pretty much agreed that we need one more month of summer weather, and would love two. Yeah, well, good luck […]

A Moment In Montana’s Colorful History – This weekend we celebrated 150 years since gold was discovered in Alder Gulch in SW Montana.

From The Cabin Door

Whether you believe in global warming/climate change is of no interest to the Sagebrush Chronicles. We here have seen and read and heard so much evidence to support it that it has long since ceased to be a debatable issue. I have a good friend who assures me that global warming is an urban myth, […]


Friday Harbor Heaven

            Friday Harbor     The S. S. Ambition, moored at Friday Harbor     I have always loved the water. And boats. Boats of any kind. Water does basically the same thing for me that mountains do… gets my heart beating a little faster, gets my senses opened up […]

Maui… Wowie!!

Sad but true… I’ve never been interested in seeing Hawaii. Have been seeing all these gorgeous pics of it since I was little. The Hawaiian Islands became a state in 1959. They always seemed so far out there in the Pacific, so surreal and soft-looking… guess I never really took them seriously. Even after people […]

Okay, it’s time to tell you… life is fleeting. I know, you knew that already. But… are you really living as if??  C’mon – we all KNOW it, we just don’t quite live it that way all the time. And that’s what this post is all about.  Once a year, okay? Don’t let me preach […]

A prominent figure among his people, he pursued a path of accommodation to white settlers, forming a personal relationship with David Swinson “Doc” Maynard. Seattle, Washington […]
