Marty’s photo of the day #4471: Each summer, Deb and I rent at least one U.S. Forest Service Cabin, and last week we rented the Canyon Creek Cabin in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest (west of Melrose, Montana). One Montana cabin tradition that sickens me is that quite literally every cabin has skulls and bones hanging outside. Some were likely found on the ground, and others came from hunters, who rent the cabins during hunting season.

No matter how the bones got there, why do people feel it necessary to display them? I’m there to enjoy live animals, not dead ones! Last week I felt as if I had entered a scene in the movie Apocalypse Now.
