Bob Baker and me outside the Liberal Arts building at the University of Montana.
Me and Emily and a friend in the main quad at the U of M.

A passing mountain goat.
A Columbian ground squirrel is more interested in the camera than his larger friend.
Smoke plume from the Red Eagle fire, which was burning in the eastern half of the park.
I am subdued by Henry, the child of Emily's friend Cheri, who lives in Whitefish and guided us on a float down the North Fork of the Flathead River with her partner Dave.
The trigger for our trip was the wedding of my cousin Daniel to a lovely woman named Bethany from Livingston, MT. Here two of Daniel's dogs, Moses and Timber, wait for the ceremony.
Bride and groom. They'd carefully selected August 12 because it had only rained twice on that day for as long as they've been keeping records. Well, August 12, 2006 was the third day.
After the ceremony.
Unearthly evening light in a horse pasture near where the wedding took place.
A view of Yellowstone National Park.
An elk in Yellowstone.
View from Inspiration Point overlooking the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River.
Two more elk (I think) near the entrance to the park at Mammoth Hot Springs.
