Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Livingston, MT in the news

According to CNN, President Obama was in Livingston, Montana today to make his pitch for health care to skeptical Montanians. Some of the shots that caught our eyes when we photographed in town were equally of interest to the CNN videographers. They shot the theater, the Sax and Fryer bookstore, and the old hardware as B roll. And, of course, the town hall rhetoric was there too.

We like Livingston. There are a lot of bars here! (That’s not why we like it.) It’s just a funky town with some real character. We had a good meal out for a reasonable price. Walked around and took photos, Erik succumbed to the urge and bought a cowboy hat. Yee haw.

Down on Main Street.

This dog reminded me of the late great Kasha Montana, because it clearly loves to go in the car.

The Northern Pacific Railway depot in Livingston is magnificent and now houses a museum. Livingston is now on the main line of Montana Rail Link, formerly Burlington Northern and originally, the Northern Pacific. Passenger trains used to run on a branch line south through the Paradise Valley to Gardiner, Mt. and the original entrance into Yellowstone National Park. The central depot bldg. is flanked on the east and west ends by collonaded walkways leading to a cafe on one end and the old baggage room on the other. Google Northern Pacific depot in Livingston, Mt and you can find photos of this beautiful structure.
