Taking a walk across the Higgins Street Bridge in Missoula at night is a wonderful experience any evening of the year because of its wonderful views of the city lights, but on New Years Eve the views are extraordinary as the fireworks displays are added to the mix, reflecting off the usually peaceful Clark Fork River.
