Butte America

 

A few weeks ago I spent a week visiting family in Butte. I wandered around and took photos without a blog or Instagram agenda. Lately I've been thinking a lot about how I want my social media, mainly Instagram and my blog, to be more of a story, more of an adventure you can take with me. Instead of wandering around and taking a bunch of photos, too many photos, and feeling dissatisfied at the end, I really want to take better photos and photos that have a true meaning. I've been working towards this goal, meshing my photos, stories, and adventures all into one and I cannot wait to share that change with you. One of the things I love most about this outlet, art form, whatever it is called is that it can change with me. It's 100% creative and unique and whatever I want it to be. Anyways I took a bunch of photos over the month and I am posting them all now. I was disheartened and unmotivated there for a while and starting to get my spark back! In the past I regretted more not posting than posting less than perfect photos or content because this is sort of a personal journal for me.

I love the old brick houses.

Butte is an old mining town. It was one of the biggest towns in the West at one point and has some great architecture. They are slowly trying to bring life back to the town because as soon as the resources were used up a lot of people left. I love wandering around and looking at the old buildings and the uniqueness of them.

My mom and I like to walk the Mountain Con Mine trail officially called Mountain Con & Foreman's Park. They just planted a bunch of trees and made a really nice walkway with informational signs. It is advertised as having 2 miles of trails, a gazebo, restrooms, picnic tables and benches, interpretive signs, and barbecue grills.
