Celebrating The Solstice

When you are almost 50 miles from a town you find your own fun. On June 21st, the longest day of the year, the sun in southwestern Montana wouldn’t set until 9:18 Mountain Time. That was perfect for a relaxing dinner with Marilyn, one of the other volunteers at Red Rock Lakes NWR and an after dinner walk. We chose the Sparrow Lake Trail because it was nearby and none of us had been down that way before. The walk was about 3 miles but we took our time, enjoying the bird songs, wildflowers and scenery. Just standing still and listening to the sounds or at times the lack of sound was wonderful. Thanks Marilyn for sharing your photos of us.
