Troutbirder: The Nature Loving Life
Nice piece of history. Thanks for sharing it with me! :-)
Pretty cool piece of history!
It's a wonderful story. It must be quite nice to live in a place where the land has barely changed from when the Indians traveled it all those years ago. We have the Trail of Tears here but everything is so different. One day I'll visit out west as the sky is beautiful. So big.
Very nice piece of history. Love that last painting.
Beaverhead Rock and Troutbirder...both outstanding in the field!
I still use Landmarks today! Although not many are in the form of a big beautiful stone. I deal with barns, water towers and the such...
Interesting! That is quite a landmark..what awesome adventures those early explorers had:)
Very interesting story to go with the photo!
I love this stuff.i had thought Saca.. was kidnapped or something. perhaps a slave at one time.
Interesting landmark and history!
This is about 70 miles south from here, and I've read it took two to three days to travel in 1890 by wagon. What it must have been like to pass through this country in 1803-5 boggles the mind.
We visited that very spot about 10 years ago. It's fascinating to cross the Lewis and Clark path and contemplate what it was like to travel that county over 200 years ago.
Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a note. it gave me the chance to briefly sample troutbirder's observations on history, travel, birds, flowers, hiking, biking and butterflies. The amazing monarchs ewere as far as I got today. They will be arriving here on the Mississippi Gulf coast soon. A few weeks ago a walking buddy and i were walking on the Biloxi Bay Bridge and swarms of Gulf fritillilaries were flying by. The next week they were not on the bridge but we caught up with them in Mobile, Ala., abput 60 miles east . Can't wait to see if the monarch's path includes the bridge. Will visit again.
I liked seeing the painting of the area too. Landmarks like this have seen a lot of history that we will never know but they are so good to see.
That was a nice read with good information.
"Troutbirder" has been included in the Sites To See for this week. I hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.http://asthecrackerheadcrumbles.blogspot.com/2012/10/sites-to-see.html
Good place! Watch out for the rattlers there though.
I love the legends of the Indian tribes and the stories of the explorers and traders. Montana is beautiful.
