Snow geese find it crowded on the few ice-free portions of Freezeout Lake! (Keith Hammer photos except one)
Swan Rangers are seeking social distance in the great outdoors, but it isn't always easy!
Keith and Pam visited Freezeout Lake a couple days before Governor Bullock ordered Montanans to stay home due to coronavirus concerns. Click here and here for a couple short videos of snow geese at Freezeout Lake!
Norma did a solo ski of the Power Line Trail at the Blacktail Mountain Nordic Trails Saturday.
Many National Parks, along with National Forest and State campgrounds are closed to avoid tempting people to travel and unintentionally congregate.
People are allowed outdoors under Bullock's order, but it is imperative to practice "social distancing" in those areas that remain open to the public.
While the Swan Ranger Saturday group outings remain suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will try to get a report out most weeks with items of interest to folks trying to get out in the woods for some "social distancing" and spirit-calming fresh air.
Snow geese settle in on Freezeout Lake for a night's rest on their journey north!
In the morning, as spectators practice social distancing, snow geese fly eastward . . .
. . . toward the rising sun . . .
. . . to feed on barley in fields of stubble!
