How many times have you driven to Bridger Bowl? Everytime you go, do you notice something new? My family and I moved to Bozeman 2 ski seasons ago, and it wasn't until this year when one of our children said, "Hey MOM! What is that? What is its story?" that we noticed it. 

It's a WHALE! You will find it 11 miles from downtown Bozeman. What is its story? After reading an article in The Bridger Canyon Whale ( by Angie Ripple, I learned about the story of the whale... Salute is  on the way home and it will bring more snow. What have you heard about the whale? What do you know about it? Is it a family tradition in your vehicle?

A whale is a symbol of good fortune and well being. Whether it is there for that, or for more snow, I am not really sure. I do know that George Rice originally created the whale and it stands on a 20ft pole on the way to Bridger. It is a work of art! It got our attention and the question is, does it get yours?
