Check out our beautiful “LAZ” Hill

Laz A Hill design


Thanks to Anaconda residents Rick and Trish Wagner, the famed “A” Hill has a new look this morning as the town mourns the loss of Tony Laslovich.

“Laz” was laid to rest this morning after a service at Holy Family Church among hundreds of family, friends and admirers.

A loyal Anacondan and Copperhead, I can think of no better honor to bestow upon such a man. Just beautiful.



Bucks in Anaconda, velvet

As many of you know, through the years more and more deer are calling Anaconda home too. This is one of three nice-sized, still-growing mule deer bucks that have frequented the east end of town. This photo was snapped Wednesday night near AWARE’s new Center For Excellence.



Anaconda: the beauty of Fall

Living in Anaconda, just stepping out your front door is enough for you to take in all the splendor of the Fall season. But if you aren’t still living in the area, these shots will have you missing your hometown even more.

I took a ride around and started capturing some of my favorite shots on Cable and Stumptown roads, along with some other landmarks such as Mount Haggin with the valley floor illuminated with the colors of the season.

Let me know what you think!
