Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Yellowstone Dream and More!

Retweet

Every one has a dream…Many years ago Thurber wrote about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  As a follow-up to this short story, a movie was made with Danny Kaye, who some of you might remember. After seeing that movie and reading the short story again I bring my thoughts to Yellowstone Country and Yellowstone National Park. As Mitty had a number of special day dreams a visit to Yellowstone is a favorite dream of many.  Many, indeed, live out their dream in the wild…so was this a dream of Walter Mitty.  Let’s visit Walter Mitty as he shares this dream...click here .  

You will see that even Yellowstone is a special favorite of the Mitty family.

If you are so inclined…drop me a note and I will send you a list that I have personally compiled about people, places and things to see and do here in Yellowstone Country.  In fact do it now.  Leave a comment here or email me at info@inthemomentwithadele.com.

Plan to visit with me in Montana

Retweet

Come and join me in Montana and Invite your friends or come alone and make new friends. Need to take a break and at the same time have fun?  Come and join me in Montana…the mountains and the West are just 2 of the ingredients that will make this break memorable. I guarantee that you will come back again. You will find that you just can not do everything.  

American Bison

Remember that the Bison are waiting for you to join them in a Bison Jam in Yellowstone.

I am located in Paradise Valley just about 33 miles from the Northwest entrance to the Park.  Right here, I have a few places for you to stay.  The places are from a special Bed and Breakfast with great breakfasts prepared each morning , to cabins and private homes where you are on your own.  These accommodations are great and provide comfort for your whole group.

I have met some great people who will help you make the plans while you are here.  So when you arrive, you will be off to explore as soon as you are settled in and ready to go.

As I have chosen Paradise Valley as my home base for Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village, I can promise you that the location includes a bit of Paradise with close proximity to Yellowstone Natioal Park and beyond. For instance here is a link to a Montana Festival you might want to go to and it even has  free admission (only 110 miles away and a great day trip.)   The link  to this festival is http://montanafolkfestival.com/.   Just follow the link to check this out.  I am planning to attend.  Hope you will join me.  

Take the next step…Contact me with dates you would like to come to Paradise Valley.  I will research what is happening. Will work out the possible costs for you.  Just let me know what you would like to do such as fly fishing, hiking, classes in the wild, rock climbing, art and photography in the wild, dancing, rodeo watching, horseback riding up into the hills, camping in the wild… It goes on in on…There is so much to do.  

So call me now…Look forward to visiting with you via phone or email.  Will work with you on making your stay comfortable and exciting and restful and unforgettable and…!  You will want to come again.  

Now all you have to do is…

Contact me at resilienceliving@gmail.com or call me at 405-333-4055.   Will be excited to hear from you.   Let’s plan a special time here in and around Paradise Valley.

Treasures of Paradise Valley

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.   Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into the trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will dop off like autumn leaves.”  John Muir on Our National Parks

It has been some time since I have posted to Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village.  I thank all of you for your continued support in visiting the many areas of this special Village throughout the summer and fall.  Now that it is winter and the snowcapped mountains are before me I will begin opening more doors to all of our visitors to Brook N’ Dell.

To give you a hint on what doors will begin to open…

The Victor Hugo Center for the Visual and Performing Arts will be introducing a very special Yellowstone Public Radio Celebrity…T.J. Starr. Everyone should learn about this special historian.  J. K. Steele has been presenting Saturday Night on Sunday for 25 years.  As a volunteer he is definitely dedicated to his love of history and the 60’s.  Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village and Resilience Living Connect are both proud to provide a special wing at the performing arts center where J. K. can deducated to sharing with all the world visitors his love of music, vintage radio shows and his love of art to name a few along with his love of history.  Over the next week his wing will be under construction.  Please bookmark this wing so you can come back again and again.  We know you will become thrilled to learn about this special Montanan who has dedicated his life to the visual and performing arts.

The Dell Ranch will be inviting you to the mountains of the Dell Ranch where we are excited to include what is happening in the close-by mountains of Absaroka.  Here you will not only view many videos and pictures; moreover, meet and greet the special people who provide Absaroka Dog Sledding, Mark, Britt and Carr.

Life in Montana is filled with treasures.  As Montana is called the Treasure State, Brook N’ Dell is thrilled and excited to bring many of these treasures to you along with the special land of Yellowstone.  So, please bookmark Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village.  This is a place you will always want to visit.  We will even be providing places to stay when you plan to experience this land for yourself.

THE FLAG GOES BY

 BY

Henry Holcomb Bennett

"The Parade" by Artist, Marie Brown

 

Hats off!
Along the street there comes
A blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums,
A flash of color beneath the sky:
Hats off!
The flag is passing by!

Blue and crimson and white it shines,
Over the steel-tipped, ordered lines.
Hats off!
The colors before us fly;
But more than the flag is passing by.

Sea-fights and land-fights, grim and great,
Fought to make and to save the State:
Weary marches and sinking ships;
Cheers of victory on dying lips;

Days of plenty and years of peace;
March of a strong land’s swift increase;
Equal justice, right, and law,
Stately honor and reverend awe;

Sign of a nation, great and strong
Toward her people from foreign wrong:
Pride and glory and honor,–all
Live in the colours to stand or fall.

Hats off!
Along the street ther comes
A blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums;
And loyal hearts are beating high:
Hats off!
The Flag is passing by!

Have a Wonderful 4th of July to all of you…from our home to yours.
