  Ah…Circus Animals! The mighty lion is King; roaring loudly at the small dude, he wants nothing more than to grab that whip and chair and show the guy exactly who’s boss!

  Circus Elephants   When the music began, the Big Top curtains lifted and Jumbo walked into the tent.

Brutus.jpg

    by Sherry Gillam It was mid October when I first met Brutus & his bear friends.  So very many times I have passed this place, which is only about 15 min east of Bozeman and located just off the interstate.  Seemed like such a “tourist trap”, so I had never even considered visiting […]

by Sherry Gillam We hadn’t spotted a moose all summer long in Montana…not even in Yellowstone Park, which is very odd.  Maybe we had been looking too hard.  It was early October in the late afternoon and we had pulled off the highway near a tiny town near Bozeman.  I had spotted an interesting thing […]
