Spring is a gorgeous time of year in Missoula. The winter snow melts and gives way to brilliantly green mountainsides and rushing creeks, streams and rivers. The wildflowers begin to dot the hills with bright hues, subtly at first and then with an explosion of colors that cannot be missed. The warming sunshine beckons Missoulians and visitors alike to adventure outside, be it patio sitting or endless exploring. Not to mention the amazing sunsets and sunrises that come with the spring season. Put it all together, and it is a very special and can't-miss season in Missoula! If these photos do not give you spring fever, we are not sure what will. Happy spring to you: now it's time to soak it all in!
