“New” greens have such variety, and vibrancy. You even have lime-popsicle-green in this one! (I once had a Snap-On ratcheting screwdriver in that exact shade of green. When it went in the water, I grieved for months. Your plants belong in the water. That screwdriver didn’t.)
The water level is a little high from snow melt in the Glacier Park area. Unfortunately though, not as high as in a normal year.
The country is still rejoicing about spring, but it’s getting very dry already. We are hoping for some good rains to come along!
This is on the Flathead Indian Reservation. It’s one of the places I like to hike especially during winter when the access to higher country is blocked by snow. THere is a lot of wildlife on the Res. too.
I had just been on a search for Bitterroots (which I didn’t find) and had my 60mm macro lens on the camera, so that’s what I used. It works pretty well as just a regular 60mm lens. Wish I had the zoom though. I did track him down about a half mile away and got a slightly fuzzy photo at a closer range that I will post probably tomorrow. You have sharp eyes for the critters!
The river through that area is very scenic. A Reservation conservation license is required to hike through there, but I buy one every year. It also gives me access to the rest of the reservation (1.313 million acres).
I’m overjoyed to see what I am still able to see and to go where I can still go, but very sad to see the direction that the west seems to be going regarding wild places and wilderness. We are probably the last generation that will be able to see all that we see now. So much damage is being done.
