Marty’s photo of the day #4054: This is one of my favorite photos from Deb’s, Nellie’s, and my backpacking trip earlier this week. Prairie smoke was plentiful where we were hiking (in Anaconda Mountain Range of southwestern Montana), but it was difficult to photograph because the slightest breeze would swing the plant back and forth […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3884: Nellie: “Seriously Dad. When are you going to put away that camera and do something really important, like play football with the dog?”
