Another April Day in Montana

From nearby Livingston....

We would show the Bozeman Pass webcam, just up the road from home, but that's up in the clouds and camera lenses are caked with snow and slush, so we added some porch photos (click on the photos to enlarge).

This is lower Mt. Ellis -- upper Mt. Ellis is completely obscured. Bozeman pass is off to the left.

This is a shot at the foot of Kelly Canyon (lower right), where William Clark (of Lewis and Clark) camped during his eastward return trip on July 14, 1806. Bozeman Pass is off to the right. Clark went left, following buffalo trails to take the longer but gentler Jackson Creek route across the Bridger Range, and then down to the Yellowstone River at Livingston.

Beyond the barns, looking the opposite direction, the vista goes down into Gallitan Valley.
