Summertime…


Gallatin Valley from the South

It has been a nice, hot, and smokey summer up here in Bozeman. But a new puppy and canoe have been keeping me plenty busy. Here are a few select shots from the summer so for.

Nice looking Cutty caught by Eric Bee.

There have been several fires this summer with the heat and dryness. Watched this chopper refill to put out a nearby fire.

A new canoe has added a new element to the summer. Sarah and I testing it out on Hyalite Reservoir.

Rattlesnake I almost stepped on while fishing the Madison, good thing I saw him.

Rattlesnake ready to strike, we had to hike around him because he wouldn't move out of the way.
