This last week I was visiting my mom and Nic in Montana.
As usual, it is beautiful in the Bitterroot Valley. Particularly in spring. And more particularly THIS spring because they had a lot of rain and snow.
This year we took a trip to "the Garden of 1000 Buddhas". It is a Buddhist retreat built on the scared land of two Native American Tribes. So, yes, oddly placed in the mountains of Montana. It is arranged has a huge prayer wheel whee you can to the traditional walk around the outside of the wheel.
Inside the wheel 6 walls topped by Buddhas lead to a central shrine.
On a hill to the northeast is a route to a outbuilding flying prayer flags everywhere.
It was odd and cool.
