The Swan Crest seen across Flathead Lake! (Keith Hammer photos)
Thirteen Swan Rangers skied groomed x-country trails on Blacktail Mountain on a sunny Saturday, March 30, 2019!
Snow at lower elevations is getting punky and scarce!

Everything was going great for the Swan Rangers until they . . .
. . . encountered a grove of birch trees and their chameleon instincts kicked in!
Did we mention it was sunny out?
Flathead Lake is thawing, but ice remains along the north shore!
Peaks in Glacier Park seen above Teakettle Mountain!
Spring is in the air and on the ground!
The old radar bubble and current communications towers atop Blacktail Mountain. Can you hear me now?
The Swan Rangers meet every Saturday at the Echo Lake Cafe for breakfast at 8:30, leaving at 9:30 for a partial day outing in the northern Swan Mountains and foothills.
They carpool from the Swan River School parking lot next to the Cafe.
When hiking in bear country, remember to carry bear spray and avoid the 3-D's: dawn, dusk, and darkness.
Everyone is welcome!
