The blue speck is the parachute of a silly person that jumped off the bridge. Saw at least 4 people jump and land on the river bar below.

We saw a total of 8 well antlered bucks wandering around Lakeview. I think they knew they were safe from hunters when in town.

  1. Thanks for the vicarious road trip Kit! These are great photos. I love the aspens (or birches if that’s what they are).
    Hope I can make it tomorrow,
    Edin
