Pics from my recent trip.

Post by Johnny Dangerous » Tue Jul 03, 2018 7:25 am

I made my second trip to the Garden of 1000 Buddhas near Missoula Montana, this time was especially awesome as there was a teaching going on, and yet the garden itself was less crowded. On a couple of occasions I had it all to myself, it is a very special place. The first pic is not of the garden but of an area nearby on the Bison Range.

Ah, Missoula. Rode my motorcycle out there, summer of 1984, beautiful area. The Garden wasn't there then. Did you get up to Lolo hot springs?

Great pics, lots of good memories. :smile:

Beautiful stupas and statue, and beautiful scenery. It is nice to get out to nature sometimes. I am up in the Adirondacks myself. I will post some pics in another thread.

I never got photos but it was lovely. I saw Lake Placid (2'nd time), Lake Flower, Schroon Lake, Loon Lake, Lake George (been there before too), and Lake Moreau.

I was just up there a few days.
