ENNIS— Last week, we introduced you to Sam Korsmoe, race director and outdoor educator extraordinaire, and this week we begin a reporter’s journey to achieve what only 24 have achieved in the history of the GYAS: the title of total badass (TBA, as it’s referred to by participants).
VIRGINIA CITY—At their July 3 meeting, the Madison County commissioners considered a wide array of topics, the most time-sensitive of which concern additions and work on the Madison County fairgrounds.
ENNIS - A stout snowpack and a wet spring have filled Madison County’s waterways and greened pastures to the point that some residents have said they haven’t seen things so verdant, so lush in nearly 50 years.
As a result, thoughts of last year’s drought and the fires it sparked are far, far away for most people.
ENNIS—The biggest block party of the summer lived up to its hype at the “Meet Me in Ennis, Montana” Fourth of July celebrations. Around 10,000 people packed Main Street for Ennis’s 83rd annual parade, and many stayed all day to take in a variety of offerings and soak up some—finally—summer-like weather.
VIRGINIA CITY – The Montana Heritage Commission (MHC) recently released a report that tallied the economic impacts it and the visitors attracted to its four historic properties, two local, produced during 2017.
The numbers are pretty incredible.
NEVADA CITY—The living history museum of the Montana Heritage Commission opened for the season during Memorial Day weekend, but the summer season really got into full swing with the museum’s annual Summer Celebration weekend June 28-30.
ENNIS - The way Sam Korsmoe sees it, race directors like to call their respective marathons, 5Ks and 10Ks the most beautiful, the most difficult, the most whatever.
But, says Korsmoe, those descriptors are all completely subjective. He didn’t want that when he created the Greater Yellowstone Adventure Series (GYAS) .
BIG SKY - On a Sunday morning in 1964, one of the nurses at Oswego Hospital in upstate New York invited two of her fellow weekend nurses to join her for morning coffee in the hospital’s nurses’ lounge.
NEVADA CITY – On Friday afternoon, June 22, Andy Thomas and Darlene Tussing stood at the Nevada City train station staring down at three large maps laid out on the bench in front of the station.
The maps contain an idea they share for a public multi-use trail that would connect Nevada City and Alder.
TWIN BRIDGES - For members of Montana’s cycling community, RATPOD is a well-known event, and a goal for many. This year the event—which stands for Riding Around The Pioneers in One Day—added a second ride to their annual fundraiser.
