I think I’m gonna like it here! 🏔Touched down in Livingston, Montana for @huffpost’s #ListenToAmerica tour and was instantly smitten by the rugged countryside, the genuine people and the town’s all-around charm. (Thanks @hayleygracemiller for the snap)
By far, one of the most unique and incredible places I've ever stayed is Elk River Art Studio & Lodging in Gardiner, Montana. It's an art studio, gallery, and guesthouse that was built from the ground up by Shirl and John, a married artist-sculptor couple. No detail was overlooked and, with Yellowstone National Park literally in its backyard, it is stunning - inside and out. Be sure to swipe to view all the photos and see how amazing this place is!

WCT ROAD TRIP: Goin' to town on some Wilcoxson's ice cream from The Chocolate Moose. The flavor was Chocolate Runs Through It. Can you guess what movie they're super proud of here? #yellowstonecountry#boldlygomt @yellowstonecountry #wilcoxsons
WCT ROAD TRIP: Kirk (somehow) made it up the three-mile hike to Lava Lake at the mountaintop. One of the most stunning sights in Montana! @yellowstonecountry @gm_diversity @chevrolet #boldlygomt#yellowstonecountry#findnewroads
Friday Flashback: that time we were in #YellowstoneCountry and stayed at @chico_hot_springs not only is this resort in beautiful Montana it provides a relaxing, comfortable setting. The bonus prize is the unexpected luxurious food and wine you’ll experience. We shared a wonderful dinner with the owners Colin and Seabring Davis this summer. One of the highlights on the menu is this Beef Wellington platter. Angus Beef topped with pistachio and cognac duck pate wrapped and baked in a puff pastry, and served with duchess potatoes and roasted tomatoes. To make it even more special it’s carved table-side and enough for two. This is just one of the tasty dishes you’ll experience at Chico Hot Springs. And don’t forget to order some wine. Colin searches the world to find the best to share with his guests. Read all about Chico Hot Springs and Day Spa in our latest post on the site. Click the link in our profile.
Sharing some favorite wildlife pictures from my recent trip to Yellowstone National Park.🦌 We spent the day exploring on a private tour with MacNeil of @yellowstone_insight. What a difference it makes to have an expert guide you through one of the world's most iconic destinations. Trust me, you will get so much out of even one day with a guide like MacNeil and make your entire trip worth it👍🏼@yellowstonecountry
Day four in the Yellowstone backcountry took us through the southern part of the Thorofare, across the Yellowstone River, over the Continental Divide and into Snake River country.
The backcountry is a treat for those who love the unspoiled, secluded wilderness. You're surrounded by miles of open country -- and all sorts of weather. This day, we rode in the sun, in pelting sleet, then rain and dropping temperatures before crossing a rising creek on foot into camp at the headwaters of the Snake River.
On this day, I learned that hot hands hand warmers don't work when they get wet. I learned that I may still fit into my jeans with two layers of long underwear on, but that getting on the horse can then become a challenge (a feat I pulled off twice in quick succession because I dropped said hand warmers twice in a row -- #leavenotrace#yellowstonepledge ). And I found that sometimes you go to bed at 8:45 because you're exhausted from so much beauty (and good food).
