Sixmile Peak along the Swan Crest. (Keith Hammer photo)
Swan Rangers saw the sky turn Springlike during the week ending Saturday, February 27, 2021!

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 snapped our lead photo while hiking the north shore of Flathead Lake but, when he looked down . . .
. . . he saw what looked like the track of Bigfoot!
Pam Willison did a better job of paying attention to the geese, which she said numbered in the thousands when she hiked there with Pat, Mary and Norma.
She also got this photo of geese flying in front of the Swan Range. The waterfowl production areas along the north shore close March 1 - July 15 to protect nesting waterfowl from human disturbance.
Keith later got this photo of Flathead Lake and a Springlike sky while skiing the lower reaches of Krause Basin. He, Chris and Fawn skied North Fork Krause Creek on Saturday.
Rod Wallette took this nice photo of a snow squall in Cottonwood Bottom!
A number of Rangers skied the Blacktail Mountain Nordic Trails, with Debra Schweitzer sending in this photo . . .
. . . and Linda Anderson showing us what it was like before the groomer got to it!
Our parting shot this week is from Sallie Gratch, looking through the railing of their tenth floor apartment in Evanston, IL, with folks looking for the sidewalks in 18" of snow at ground level!
