It was a beautiful day yesterday, so a friend and I drove out to a ghost town, stopped in Missoula for lunch, and then took the dogs to the south end of Flathead Lake. . . . .
Several years ago one of my sons and I took a mc ride to GNP. Unfortunately it was too early and Going to the Sun Road hadn't opened. We opted to loop around Flathead Lake - no small lake (at least by CT standards :) ). It is a really beautiful lake / area. I still remember the 'free standing' gas pumps that served as gas stations. No one there. Just put your credit card in and pump away.

On another ride we rode out of Wyoming in the pouring rain all day and pulled into Missoula around noon, totally soaked and cold. I think it was a Perkins that we pulled into - looked like heaven to me.

I took these photos from the top of my property yesterday evening as I headed out on a trail behind the house. That's Canada in the distance.

An old school friend sent these pictures of the aurora over Gustavus, AK a couple of days ago.

I had dinner at my friend's place on Flathead River last night. Hopefully I'll be using his boat ramp sooner than later once the water level in the river comes up. I'll be cutting his fields in a month or two as I've done for the last three years.

These photos encompass a 180 degree view from his dock.

Shot this a few tears ago, one Sunday morning when I came out to the kitchen. I believe it's an American Kestrel, with some snow on his head.

Encountered my first dung beetle today. Gypsy was pretty upset when we encountered it. She kept trying to brush dirt onto it 😂😂🤣😂🤣🤣

Drove by this herd of wild mustangs out here in northern Nevada. Try to count how many there are!

Tried to zoom in…..94 ?
Everyone can easily tell there’s 88…. ;)

Like I know- - - just making fun.

It’s a bunch and I’ve never seen wild horses before except on television.

Real neat photo.👍

Actually, there were quite a few more scattered about out there that weren't in the camera's view. If you actually want to see wild horses, Nevada is the place. According to the Government, wild horse population in Nevada is ~ 40,000. A lot of taxpayer money is spent every year on wild horse gathers. They have no natural enemies so they overpopulate and there's not enough fodder and water to keep them alive.

Now the wild burros are getting overpopulated also.
