Horse Butte Fire Tower

A long day it is.  The sun will set at 9:15 this evening and with this sunshiney day, there will be light in the sky well after 10 o’clock.  Today has been a shade bit windy and the warmest thus far…….The first day of Summer has come in with a bang………about flippin’ time, if I don’t say so myself.  Our ecosystem feels about a month behind most of springs I have witnessed in the Hebgen Basin.  While walking the shores of Hebgen Lake this afternoon, with the dogs and my sister in law, we glassed the mountains for avalanches.  Almost every drainage had fresh snow slides – more white shit tumbling down is exactly what we need right now.  Cornices are falling too.  The mountains are melting out.   

Stella - 7 months or so.

  Hope you got out to enjoy the longest day of the year – Summer Solistice.   I am off to the Missouri once again……see ya soon.
