We've been hiking our way through the Rockies and this is our first chance to send back some photos. These were taken on a Blackfeet reservation in Montana. It's glorious beyond words so we'll just post a few photos. (The trading post has the only Internet signal for hundreds of miles. Cell phones connected via Verizon work around the trading post; AT&T does not.)
A few days of rain has swollen the streams. Elk, bears and free-range cattle coexist on this land, which runs all the way up to Canada.
Eventually we'll figure out what kind of tree this is, which grows all over the place here.
