Down That Dusty Trail

Earlier this year I had some cowboy photographs and an article I wrote appear in Men’s Journal magazine.

Blaine County Cowboys

In the heart of north central Montana there’s a quiet place where the western Bear Paw Mountains meet the eastern Montana plains. It’s a place called Blaine County. On first glance, there isn’t much to Cleveland…except for a tiny saloon (when it is open), a schoolhouse with one room, one student, and one teacher, and …
