|I love these trees!|
I almost positive this is a pine that loses its needles each winter. Trouble is, I'm not sure what they are called. I'm pretty sure they are Tamaracks (according to Wikipedia, they are called Tamarack Larch, which I thought was two separate trees).
All the rivers are so high! We've been comparing them the last few weekends when we've gone out of town. We found a neat scenic trail around Rock Creek, and it was FLOODED.
|The water was so high at one point that it carried grass over the boardwalk|
|The grass looks like feathers, doesn't it?|

Driving further into Rock Creek we found a death bridge:
I am scared to bejeezus of heights, but it's really hard to pass up something like this.
Scott took some hilarious (not) photos of me inching my way over it. Each step made the bridge bounce and the middle board on the bridge was seriously warping. Why do movies always have bridge planks break??! That was the only thing I could think about.

It was such a fun weekend, with Bozeman on Friday, hiking/ goofing off on Saturday, and relaxing on Sunday. Hope you all had an awesome weekend too!
