    I love ❤️ that bonfire-moon-beach scene, Spin!

    Here's a shot of a vernal pond we came across during today's hike.

    Ha! Fake geography.

    Methinks … Mission mtns, McDonald lake/canyon at center, McDonald Peak just to the right, south.


    I’ve been on McDonald Peak. We went up on the wider snowfield on the west slope, stopping to camp about half way. We crossed griz tracks in the snow near the summit and a bunch more as we descended the back, south, side. Saw lots of bear glissading sign that looked like nothing but play, and we were doing the same on our way down.


    Geography Fact: McDonald peak has the second greatest topographic prominence (after Crazy Peak) of all summits within Montana.



    Truth lies betwixt Señor Burrito’s ears, this New Year’s Day afternoon.

    Yeah, and especially problematic for the tribes.

    McDonald can be climbed in a day, but you have to leave the trailhead around 4 am, and you don't return until 10 pm.


    The Crazies have a huge public lands problem. The wilderness is public, but the access crosses private land.

    The locals can be jerks:





    Below is a photo of the Crazies that I took a year ago:

    The truck in the middle could get out with some damage - but even more to the other rigs. Was the truck parked on private land or something?

    The article is three years old, and I do not know the progress, or lack thereof of access. Nor do I know how accurate is the article... a few months ago I started to try to figure out, online, what was going on in the Crazies, but the whole thing was so depressing that I decided to just not go to the Crazies. Montana has many pocket ranges like the Crazies, but with better access. The issues surrounding public and private land are quicksand for the passionate, and since I moved back here I have grappled on how to proceed on the issues.
    Thank you. It's a tough one. Around here there is public access to all fed. & state park & wilderness areas. Some have easements, but many were set up to get to a public road.

    When you have extreme property rights folks and/or people who make a mess on private land, problems arise.

    I liked the light on the hillside after a fresh snowfall. No those aren't drones in the sky - they're reflections of the Christmas tree lights in the window.

    Thanks, looks great! Many of our parks had very similar trellises, usually painted white, or cream, when I was a kid. Usually for climbing roses and other ornamentals. If I ever get to converting our backyard rainforest to something useful for people rather than possums and snakes, I'd like to include something similar. For grapes.

    Its a modern interpretation or fusion of a Polynesian into Maori Pou .
    The site being one of the earliest known Polynesian settlements in NZ.

    It is. It's a slope of rock and clay, virtually no topsoil.

    We have problems arising here with access to rivers. I can travel the length of any river in the state (don't know about other states) provided I stay within the high flood banks. Trouble is a lot of landowners don't know that and can get a bit uppity about people wandering through their farms. And then when they make enquiries about the law, they often find that they- the landowners- can't do anything with the river they "own", like cut timber, take soil or rock or sand, irrigate from it etc. I try to stick to the old rule on other peoples land- leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but photos- and the occasional fish JayInOz

    Bloody soft here at the moment- we got nearly two inches of rain in a few minutes yesterday afternoon- it literally started as I walked inside after work. Overflowed all the gutters, water poured down the walls and came under the sliding window in the loungeroom and onto the floor, through the ceiling in the kitchen. Light rain for several hours after that. Neighbor just up the road put a truckload of rock on his driveway and it's all washed across the road- I'm talking jagged basalt the size of cricket balls. Apparently we got off really lightly compared to some places here- I'm sure it'll be the main topic on tonights local TV news. Got over a metre of rain last year and it keeps coming- best spring and summer in decades and nobody's complaining- except about fighting a losing battle with weeds and mowing

    Well art heathens like me don't have enough conceptual speak for that thread.
    I do like what they did with the Pou though, mixed cultural elements plus the unmistakable hull shape content, no doubt symbolising the voyage .

    I think I've told this, but that's never stopped me before...

    I've spent a lot of time in a particular town on the Maine Coast. Maine law says that anything below the high tide line is public. One day I was walking up the shore from a campground to a nearby state park, being very careful to stay below the high tide line. A guy who built a McMansion where there'd been a nice little camp came out on his deck & started yelling at me. "You're trespassing on private property!" "No sir, I'm below the high tide line, which is public" "Not where I come from, now get off my land!" "Sir, I have every right to be here." "I'm going to ask my lawyer about that!" "Please do sir, and while you're at it, have him look up the definition of @$$hole for you!".

    Well, it turns out the folks next door (in an old fashioned Maine camp) overheard me. The next day I went into the local store & a guy looked at me & said "Hey - aren't you the guy who told that jerk to have his lawyer look up the definition of @$$hole?" I allowed that I was that person & he came over & shook my hand laughing & saying "Thank you!" I was a 2 day celebrity over that.
