The family of osprey on the Hellgate Canyon nest east of Missoula sit on the nest Wednesday morning. The six-week-old chick from the pairing of Louis, left, named for Salish elder Louis Adams, who died in April 2016, and Iris, center, who has nested seasonally in Missoula more than 15 years, was recently officially named L'el'e. The bird was named for Louis Adams' auntie. #missoula #montana #osprey #montanaospreyproject #flatheadreservation #salish #ospreychicks

~Interior of the St. Ignatius Catholic Mission Church ~

The fabulous murals in this church were painted by Brother Joseph Carigano, an Italian Jesuit who was the Mission cook for many years. Brother Carigano had no formal training in art.

At the behest of Salish American Indians, Father DeSmet, a Catholic Missionary, established the St. Ignatius Mission in 1854.

The construction of the current building was started in 1891.
If you center yourself in the aisle at the St. Ignatius Catholic Church, you are perfectly positioned to appreciate the precise symmestry of the architecture and of the murals. The muralist, Brother Carignano, was untrained, but clearly, nonetheless, was well endowed with talent and expertise (and some geometry skills) to achieve such masterful murals so precisely positioned in perfect symmetry.
From this position, one is also well positioned for views of the grain of the wood in the pews, the reflection of the stained-glass windows reflected off the pews, the statuettes, the Stations of the Cross, the Baptismal Font, the podium, the altar, and the teepee for Baby Jesus in this Flathead Reservation Mission Church.
In recent years, the murals have suffered damage. Stabilizing material was used to mitigate ongoing damage until restoration could be funded.

Restoration of the damaged murals at @stignatiusmission is now underway! Follow that linked profile for updates. :) #stignatiuschurch #stignatiusmission #murals #brotherjosephcarignano #jesuit #paintings #historicchurch #stignatiusmontana #catholicchurch #flatheadreservation

A day trip to the National Bison Range on Monday with family. We saw lots of bison, meadowlarks and even an eagle. Other times we have seen many more animals but it was hot and even the bison weren’t moving far. A great place to visit a different experience every time. #missoulaevents #missoulamontana #missoulamt #nationalbisonrange #flatheadreservation

This is the greatest place name in the history of place names. I love it.

Sometimes it does not suck to live here. #ninepipeslodge #FlatheadReservation #sunset #Montana

#4thofjuly #pigroast, #fireworks over #missoula, #sunsets, #lakealva, and #flatheadreservation, and I still feel like there was so much more of #Montana to do.

High water crashed some large logs into my bridge. I don't think entropy is winning but it's sure not giving up. #montana #nature #flatheadreservation #homestead
