this week I shall take to my favorite fishing spot along the Yellowstone River in Paradise Valley, Montana, and then a hike in the Bridger Mountain Range outside of Bozeman, Montana.
It has been a good winter with the snow coming and going and it plays easy upon my old wore out knees and back. Enjoy!

|I was not the only one out on the river. We have a fellow fly fishing with rubber pants and another guy fishing off a drift boat. No motors are allowed upon the Yellowstone River keeping it pristine.|
|The fruits of my labor: A large rainbow trout. I usually pick up the lemon and do|
all the cleaning and the little wife does the dressing for this fine eating.
Hiking in the Bridger Mountains outside of Bozeman, Montana.

|My trail was a little steep and icy at points. Not for the squeamish!|
|This is the entrance to the trailhead... would not want anybody to go|
onto private property now would you?
