Here are some of my own from last August in Montana.
As we said before in a post of Poncho’s bald eagles, the area around Dillon is like a zoo for mountainous wild animals. We are headed up to Dillon sometime soon here for another photo trip so keep an eye out for those pictures and enjoy these.
The first shot, above, is of our grandson, Barry McCoy. Barry is Randy’s son and he lives in Dillon. He is a rancher, a cattleman, a trucker, and he helps others with their harvesting. In this photo, he is showing the height of the wheat crop.
Below is the sun setting on the pond behind Poncho’s house. We were out fishing and shooting photos until dark when we got this one. I’ll put up some fishing shots later. We caught some big fish on this trip.
These are beehives. Can you see the bees in the air above the alfalfa and natural grass rolls?
This is a hawk taking off from a field near Poncho’s.
Here is a white-tailed fawn hiding in the grass.
These are sandhill cranes, singing out. They let you know they’re around, that’s for sure. They screech like crazy.
Here is a cool fence out in the mountains. This type of fence seems to be the preferred fence in the Montana high country. You don’t have to pull wires out in the winter, and the animals can get by them easily.
The last two are from the Canyon Creek Charcoal Kilns, near Glendale, Mont. Roma, Penny, Beverly, Poncho and I drove there one day from Dillon for a nice day trip. The kilns were used between 1881 and 1900 to produce charcoal that powered the smelter to melt down silver that was mined nearby. Each kiln held 35 cords of wood and it was left to burn slowly for two weeks.
