Since moving to this area just over 3.5 years ago we’ve loved harvesting our own Christmas tree. For a mere $5, you can get your very own tree from just about anywhere on Forest Service land. And around here, that’s a lot of land! When you have kids however, you tend to stick to areas with trees relatively close to roads. As long as you’re 100 feet from a road or stream, it’s yours. We found our tree on a cliff just off of the Old Yellowstone Road near Yankee Jim Canyon. Garrett helped us with the selection, hugged a few we’ll visit in future years, and even tried to help cut it down. After getting our tree we enjoyed some homemade pizza, and decorated. A full and lovely day!
