A few outtakes and un-used clips from the past four months of backpacking, day hiking, and packrafting in the backyard.  What started as perhaps another low-snow, fire-prone year was delightfully not hot, and quite rainy.  Flowers, vegetation generally, and most especially the berries have been exceptional.  We didn’t have the big, lingering snowpack and fat rivers of 2014 or 2011, but the steady infusion of life (water) has made the summer of 2016 as beautiful as any since we moved up here to the Flathead.
