Want to Visit Libby, Montana?


We just returned from there!

When people think of Montana they tend to think of "Big Sky Country" and ranch land....lots of ranch land!  That is true of middle and Eastern Montana but the North West corner is mountains, trees, lakes, rivers, deer, elk, moose, bears, bobcats, mountain goats....well...you get the idea...it is wild and wonderful country!

How about I show you some pictures we took last week?

We took a trip "up the road a piece" to Kootenai Falls and the Swinging Bridge
a magnificent section of the Kootenai River...




 
 the Swinging Bridge


The bridge doesn't look to scary from this view does it????  Well here is what it really looks like!

See that thin little line hanging across the water?  That is the swinging bridge...and NO...I did not go across it...I am not a fan of heights!  OK, I admit...I am just a big chicken....

We saw this great railroad bridge over another section of the river....I do love the look of bridges....




On the back of the property where we were staying was a little stream...(little stream now, but this winter it froze..when the ice broke loose it blocked the stream at the bridge section...several homes were flooded :(
It looks so innocent now doesn't it?

Because the stream provides access to water and the foliage on the property provides seclusion it is the perfect place for Mama Doe to bed down with her new fawns...

Yep, she has twins...but I could only photograph one of them...the other was way to fast to get a photo of!
Notice they still have their spots...or at least the one you can see does...

The Doe, her fawns and a young 2 point Buck were daily visitors...along with Mama wild turkey and her babies...all in a row...but by the time I had my camera ready they were gone.




Just remember to drive carefully...and watch for this

That is what a deer in the headlights looks like!
