A creek in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness

I was very fortunate to spend last weekend with my father. We went out to eat a lot (lol) and spent time outdoors in our great national forests. This image was from the Bitterroot National Forest, a 1.587 million acre mountain paradise on the Montana/Idaho border.

Rain, finally.

The rain is finally here. Our first measurable rainfall came yesterday, and hasn’t stopped since. The mountains are getting snow, too, above 5,000 feet. The summer of 2017 is now officially the driest and hottest in recorded history for Montana. Good riddance.

I had to get out into the woods. On my way to the mountains, this bison blocked me on a narrow, dangerous road. Eventually he let me pass.
