July through September, 2008

Most of our pictures show vistas of grass and sagebrush with trees and mountains in the distance. What we often neglect to show is the wide swath of forest and berry bushes that extends along Place Creek for about ¾ mile through our property. This is where the bears and moose hang out. People chuckle at the "Bear Crossing" sign about ½ way up the driveway – until August and September, when they often report: “I saw a bear on your driveway right after that sign!” Moose tend to hang out further up the drive, so we are looking for a "Moose Crossing" sign to post there. We enjoy having such a wide range of ecologies on a relatively small piece of land.
