this past week, I was happy to have my daughter visit from California on her first trip
to Montana, and we made the most of it touring all over the local area. We went up the big Wineglass mountain near where I live, made a short trip to a buddies in Tom Miner Basin, drove up the hill into Yellowstone National Park for a grand car tour and finally over to my favorite hang out in the Crazy Mountains. These images and video reflect what we saw with both Sasha and myself
handling the camera duties with a few local shot in and around Livingston.
First a little Video of Sasha's visit.

Day 3 Yellowstone National Park
|We came across some baby bison that was getting spooked by some|
tourist children chasing them. Not good with the inept mother
running behind the kids as they crossed the road after the bison.
|Sasha and I.|
|Sasha was dying to see some babies and got her wish down in|
|The big herds of bison with all the newborns were way way off at the end|
of the day.
