Greetings from the Netherlands! (Jan Verhoef photo)
Swan Rangers reported on their outings from Krause Basin, Blacktail Mountain, and the Netherlands this week ending April 18, 2020!
Click here or scroll down for photos and details from their reports of skiing, hiking and biking!
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 outside for some "social distancing" and spirit-calming fresh air.
