We went back up to Island Park last week and had a blast. Here are a couple of shots from our visit. After years away we’ve gotten back into going up to Sawtelle Peak. It’s right around 10,000 ft. I took some shots of flowers and other things up there earlier this summer. I’m fascinated with what happens to the trees when you get up close to the top. There’s a line called the tree line of any mountain. Above a certain elevation trees no longer grow. There’s any area close to the tree line where the trees struggle. I took a few pictures and I’ll share one here.
We also went for a little 40 mile ATV ride along the Continental Divide and surrounding area in Montana. There was an interesting series of beaver dams on the South Fork of the Madison River.
Lastly but not least is getting to start nice fires to warm up the cabin in the morning. Low temps were in the 30’s and highs about 70. Beautiful weather.
