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 and Pam hiked up to Elk Springs in the Swan Range on a beautiful Fall-like day, where they checked out the old elk hunting camp and observed plants starting to show Fall colors!
They found this old burned snag with a heart of gold loved by woodpeckers . . .
. . . while Debra Schweitzer found this still-living broken-top tree with several woodpecker holes . . .
. . . on her hike with friends to Lupine Lake west of Kalispell!
Norma Linsky sent in this nice photo of Upper Geiger Lake from her rainy-day hike in the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness near Libby!
