Sun and smiles along the Swan River Trail! (Norma Linsky photo)
Nine or so Swan Rangers scattered to the wind on a St. Patrick Saturday, March 17, 2018!
Most avoided boiler-plate snow skiing by hiking the Swan River Nature Trail upstream from Bigfork!

Little did they know, however, they were being watched by a yellow-bellied marmot! (Keith Hammer photo)
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 or skiing in bear country, remember to carry bear spray and avoid the 3-D's: dawn, dusk, and darkness.
Everyone is welcome!
