This past week, I got in two hikes and was rewarded with a few nice photographs.
The first area was the Old Chico Road on the eastern backside of Emigrant Peak near Emigrant Montana. This was a land of steep mountain trails, boulders and fresh air.
The second series of photos is of a flock of White American Pelicans holding up on the Yellowstone River. They had a unlikely visitor with a lone Sand Hill Crane hanging out with them as they dozed ankle deep in the shallows of the rocky river outcrop.
|The river is getting pretty crowded now that the warm weather is back
|Some geese were getting crowded it too!
|More crowds float by.
