Faced with travel advisories and another arctic front with subzero temps and wind chills, the Swan Rangers cancelled their outing for Saturday, March 2, 2019!
It turned into a beautifully sunny day for folks to shovel, plow, split firewood, thaw out frozen pipes, and partake of other arctic accoutrements - but cold winds did persist just to keep it challenging!
The Swan Rangers meet every Saturday (with rare arctic exceptions) 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!
