Took a nice hike on Easter after the morning grouse count. Beautiful country, SW Montana; it may appear a bit sparse, but if you're willing to get a little closer to the earth, literally, it has it's own beauty. Here's a few pics; no internet here, so I climbed the pass and sent the wife the pics & text by phone.
