Mountains reflected in Lake McDonald. (Pat Jaquith photo)
Swan Rangers saw many mountain ranges during outings in the week ending Saturday, March 6, which started snowy and ended rainy!

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.
Pat Jaquith snapped our lead photo during an outing near Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park, where she also saw . . .
. . . ducks, beaver activity, and this beautiful grouse!
Norma Linsky skied the Inside Road in the Park north of Polebridge, sending in this photo of the Livingston Range . . .
. . . and these chickens at the McFarland Cabin inholding! This is of course a must-see when visiting Glacier!
Pam Willison found the Ninepipe Wildlife Refuge largely still frozen over, but got this wonderful photo of the Mission Mountains!
Debra Schweitzer took this end-on photo of Glacier Park's Apgar Range from across the Flathead River while skiing the West Glacier Golf Course.
Keith Hammer snapped this photo of the Swan Range from near Creston . . .
. . . this one of the Swan River where it flows through the "Wild MIle" cleft in the northern Mission Range, which separates Crane Mountain from Swan Hill . . .
. . . and yet another of Cottonwood Bottom, where he and Pam skied fresh snow early in the week before it got heavy in the ensuing "big thaw!"
Our parting shot and wonderful international greeting was sent in by Mary Devenny from Upper Rideau Lake, Ontario, Canada!
