Mountains of the Snowy Range

The first day of our Snowy Range adventure was overcast and rainy, but day two was sunny and gorgeous.  I just LOVE driving around out here, on roads where you may not see another person for days.  We didn't spot any elk, but I did see my first grouse in person.  It didn't want to be photographed, however. 

Also - fun fact - the fence in the second image was explained by a sign (as it was in the middle of nowhere, and on public land).  It was part of a Forest Service snow fence experiment, erected in the 1970s.  I'm not sure anyone has touched it since then.
