While the Swan Ranger Saturday group outings remain suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will get a report out each week with items of interest to folks trying to get outside for some "social distancing" and spirit-calming fresh air.
Keith Hammer and Pam hiked up Mount Aeneas and joined Rod at Flathead Audubon's Hawk Watch/Raptor Count. Keith got photos of goats . . .
. . . grouse . . .
. . . an immature red-tailed hawk . . .
. . . and an immature 35-person college class studiously ignoring Jewel Basin's 12-person group limit and COVID social distancing guidelines!
Pat Jaquith sent in a couple photos of her hike to Pete Ridge west of Kalispell with Roger, Norma and Mary - proving that a Ranger in hand is worth three in the bush . . .
. . . and that Rangers can replay Death Valley Days on Bowser Lake!
Bob and Carol Hermes hiked on Blacktail Mountain and sent in this fine photo!
Debra Schweitzer spent a couple days hiking out of Granite Park Chalet in Glacier National Park, sending in this photo of Grinnell Glacier from the Overlook on the Continental Divide!
Debra also sent in this great GNP sunset shot - a nice way to conclude this week's report!
