Day 126

Proof I don’t only shoot ducks:  Here I shoot the US Air Force!  I think these maybe the last Hueys (UH-1) in the active Air Force.  They are set up for the altitudes and weather here to protect the Minuteman III’s. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 277

I made a quick run to Idaho Falls and back for Avis last week…only about 13 1/2 hours!  This was the steam coming off of the reservoir south of Dillon.  Click on it to enlarge it; BACK to return! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 287

I went on an Avis run to Kalispell last week.  It has been a while!  There was a fire of some kind in West Glacier on the way back. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
