New Aerial Travel Video: ‘Deschland Ranch – Lewistown, Montana’

The Deschland Ranch, located about 15 miles east of Lewistown, is a classic cattle ranch offering timbered draws, strong grass range, and a good hay base along the North Fork of McDonald Creek, which passes through for over six miles. It lies in a contiguous block of nearly 7,200 scenic deeded acres providing complete privacy and control of one’s environment. The ranch is capable of running 400 mother cows plus replacement heifers and bulls while putting up an average 400-450 tons of hay on approximately 250 acres. It combines the characteristics of an optimum working ranch with outstanding hunting recreation for elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, and upland birds. The modest but comfortable improvements include two homes, a hunting cabin, and a solid set of operating improvements and corrals. It represents an opportunity to acquire a significant holding in a highly sought-after community in the heartland of Montana.

Travel Documentaries: “Passport Home” – Pete McBride Photographs The Grand Canyon (Video)

Photographer, filmmaker, and Sony Artisan Pete McBride shares this short film “Passport Home”, a glimpse of his documentary “Into the Canyon” that is nominated for Outstanding Nature Documentary at next week’s 2020 Emmy Awards.

“For years I’ve studied the world through a lens to tell the stories of others, my own, and the magic and complexity of our shared world. But after years of documenting stories I started noticing something consistent. Wherever I framed my lenses, change revealed itself before me. The places where I had ventured and worked were facing constant challenges of overuse and destruction, of being loved to a point of permanent change.”

“It was at this point that I realized my cameras were no longer just a passport for adventure, but tools to help protect the places where we adventure – those wild places we love. Now I shoot not for likes, instead I document because I want to cherish and protect the places I love…so the next person can stand in my tracks and see the magic just like I saw it. Cameras are passports to our curiosity, our creativity, our world, and they are even tools to help protect not just far away, but our own back yards.”
