USA 2 July: Parma, MT to Bearmouth, MT

Video of the first month in USA

Another scenic morning running in western Montana is difficult to describe. Perhaps a few photos here can portray some of the beauty. The vastness of the landscape, the natural aromas of the trees and flowers, the sounds of the rivers and birds, all are impossible to capture in photos or words.

Running in harmony with nature here in Montana is quite easy if we just let go of any hindering thoughts and feel a certain rapport with nature’s beauty here.

We did eventually pass through a few good sized towns with lots of people, one in particular having a special event this weekend that we were invited to. The town of Arlee on the Flathead Indian Reservation was starting its weeklong 108th Annual 4th of July Celebration, or Powwow. When we arrived there were hundreds of Native American dancers dressed in full regalia.

The Grand Entry of the dancers to the main venue was a colorful and powerfully rhythmical display of artistry and dance that lasted for about thirty minutes. It was followed by a song and a blessing prayer. We followed up by running in with two Harmony Torches around the arena, then passing a torch around to all the spectators who wanted to offer their wishes and goodwill.

During this time we also introduced ourselves and sang our theme song for them as some of the drummers started getting into the beat as well. It was truly a memorable and significant event to attend and be part of.

We are grateful to Patricia Buffalo who helped to organize our participation in the event as well as Johnny Arlee and his sons for welcoming us so openly and kindly.

The energy and harmony we felt from being at this annual celebration even for a short while was quite powerful and harmonious, lasting for the rest of the day.

Afterwards, Erik, Banshidhar, Julian and Dimitry had a nice encounter during their late afternoon run. Erik writes, “We met a nice fellow named Roger on our way to Bearmouth and he invited us to his Chalet.

The business included an RV park, camping, and a restaurant. Roger just purchased the business two days ago and he offered us camping and food at his restaurant.

We stopped for some time after our run to have some drinks and French fries but couldn’t take him up on the camping because we already had a place. He was very impressed with our travels and wants us to come back next year.”

This is indeed one of many of the special offerings that sometimes happens ‘out of the blue’ and keeps our spirits up.

Thanks to the management at the Missoula KOA Campground we were able to enjoy wonderful camping accommodations at this well equipped and peaceful park.
