Three Weeks in Montana, Some Swedes, and Lots of Hiking

We spent the most of May in and around Bozeman, Montana. 
David's parents came from Sweden for an amazing visit. We hiked nearly every day, saw a huge portion of Montana, ate a lot of awesome food... and got married! Here are some photos of our weeks together:

The parents (some of which are jetlagged and used to sea level), approaching the summit of Baldy, a mountain in the Bridger Range.

The Swedes hiking about 5,000 vertical feet (to 8914') in five miles to reach the summit of Baldy. Jet lag? No problem!

Though we're really sad to say goodbye to the families, we're looking forward to some great months of rock climbing this summer....
