This image of Rainy Lake reminds me of a painter’s palette.

I suppose it gets its name from the geothermal activity below the lake's surface, which gives the impression of rain drops falling from the sky. 

Saw an ermine!  And skied over to Tower Falls today.



Returning to Town!

Looking back towards town, today.

And on into Yellowstone NP.

Fantanstic be back.

First thing I found was this elk leg, on my doorstep..
Strange coincidence being that mere minutes earlier someone had fractured their femur a couple miles north of town (hope they are all right).

Second thing I found was this fresh slab avalanche, north of Sunset Peak.
Actually it wasn’t anywhere near the second thing..  :)
