lcarreauWhere are the trees?


Voted 10/10

Forest fire? Where do the grizzlies hang
out ??? (Do the bears usually take refuge
in the lower canyon bottoms, where there's
flowing water and plentiful nuts and berries?

These mountains are probably much higher than they look. I need to go up there
sometime and "brush elbows" with the bears!

Larry, the peaks you see here, which are unnamed, are close to 12,000'.

The grizzlies tend to stay lower in the summer. I'm just glad if they're not taking refuge on my back. Once in this area, I actually found grizzly tracks over my own as I headed back down; fortunately, the bear was headed the other way that I was at the time!

But the trees? They're below. This is one of those areas where the Great Plains meet the Rockies; it's relatively dry here, and the upper altitudes are filled with endless meadows and tundra fields.

It's Heaven to me. Maybe that's why I keep running back to my beloved Absarokas when there are so many other places to see.

Thank you, Antonio. I hope you can see these mountains yourself someday, as I hope to see the Alps.
