The weather was incredible yesterday. Gene and I hiked up the Slough Creek Trail in the NE corner of the Park.

While exiting the park at Mamouth today we saw a Bighorn Sheep down in a ravine off the road. There’s a snowstorm headed in tonight.

My brother Frank and I visited Little Bighorn Battlefield National Park today. Here’s where Custer made his last stand. I’m headed to Yellowstone Park tomorrow morning.

This is a morning view from Gene and Marta’s house in Bozeman. The view is SW over Bozeman with the Tobacco Root Mountains on the horizon.

Gene and I went drift boat fishing on the Yellowstone River below Livingston. It was cold and windy and beautiful. I didn’t catch anything! That’s Sheep Mountain in the background.

This is the Clearwater River off Highway 12 near the Idaho Montana boarder. I’m taking the scenic route. There was snow on Homestake Pass near Butte, so winter is on the way.
