Soon I'll be enjoying views from this place every weekend.
Today we took the first trip into a piece of heaven we Just bought, 30 miles from Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone. It buts up to 10 million acres of National Forest! This summer is going to be busy clearing trees and starting a cabin. Fresh Grizzly, Elk, and Moose tracks in the driveway too...

Very nice! Both of you. But Az is just a bit above my temperature range now days. Lived in Phoenix during their "Record Heat Wave" back in the '80's. And with just a swamp cooler to boot! No A/C in the car either. Now I get upset if it gets above 75*!:ROFLMAO:

"Kinda looks like the Dakotas but it ain’t?"

That is up around Drumheller Alberta, and is beautiful country. I know I have more photos somewhere around, just need to find them.

I went spring bear hunting yesterday and struck out on whacking a bear, but I don't feel like I missed out completely... Especially with the views that I was privy to while I was up in the mountains. This is up near Cascade, Idaho, and the views, they sure don't suck.

Anyone else want to share a snap of their favorite view while out in the wild?

Hard to beat a West Texas sunset...

Warning: Photo bomb incoming.. lol

Went and explored a bit more of my AO.. I loaded up my hunting pack (35lbs with water), strapped my rifle on (7mmRM Browning X-Bolt if anyone is interested) and went on a 5 mile total in and out hike, with 1300' elevation change. Trying to get into shape for hunting season this year. I will hopefully have 2 elk tags, 2 deer tags and a bear tag to fill this year.

Damn beautiful country up here to say the least.

I did a short hike to an alpine lake about an hour and a half away from my house today. 7300' elevation combined with a very steep incline to get back out = I need to get into better shape for hunting season. The views were definitely worth it though, even if the fish weren't biting.

Trail leading to the lake. About 1/3 the way there.


Almost there. Destination in sight.


The reward:

Man, I really don't have to go far to find the beauty around here.. This is only about 15mins from my house.


And because Fish and Game just released 1200 Chinook Salmon in the Boise, I figured we could take some poles and do some fishing while we were exploring. Heres my better half trying to catch us some dinner.. Unfortunately though, nothing was biting.

The darker pic (upper) was leaving the Badlands park heading towards Interior, SD. Temp was right at 0*

View is the western slope of Snowy Range in Wyoming at 10,500. I took the pic last month while rockhounding. Up until recently, I have never seen the grass cured out and brown. Even though there is a drought, the view is still awesome. There is a nice little lake full of brook trout over the ridge.
