Thanks for visiting my SmugMug Photo site. Please leave comments! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and visit my website at www.aMontanaView.com and Facebook aMontanaView on Facebook About me: I live south of Missoula, Montana on the west side of the Bitterroot valley. Many of my photos are taken here in western Montana, but also around the world. I love being outdoors. I hike, bike, fish, hunt, ski and ALWAYS take photos. As much time as I spend outdoors, one needs to eat. You might see photos of food on these treks as I explore the sights, flora and fauna. I use a Canon 7D and 5D Mark III (with a few lenses and tripods) and shoot in RAW. I process my photos into JPG with Adobe Lightroom with as few adjustments as possible.
National Bison Range
Read about the slideshow/photos at Merle's Outdoor Recreation Aritcles on examiner.com The National Bison Range is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as part of the National Wildlife Refuge System. It was established in 1908 and is one of the oldest Wildlife Refuges in the nation. A large portion of the 18, 500 acre Range consists of native Palouse prairie; forests, wetlands, and streams are also found here providing a wide range of habitats for wildlife. Elk, deer, pronghorn, black bear, coyote and ground squirrels are just some of the mammals that share the area with 350 to 500 bison. Over 200 species of birds also call this home including eagles, hawks, meadowlarks, bluebirds, ducks, and geese.Read More
