More Photos from Montana possibly a few duplicates

Below are some more photos of our Montana trip in 2008.  They are randomly selected with just a few comments.
 Lee McLarn  took the photo below of a Prong Horn Antelope a very unique animal in Idaho.

This entire process happened on our first day out to the water for fishing.  We didn’t it quite all together when we were done either.  Use small cord to hold up the plate that locks in the spare tire.

I really wanted to get a cast or two in the Gallatin River, but the guys insisted we just get some photos. I thought is would be nice to be able to say that I had fished the Gallatin River.  I believe I posted a few on another page, but will repeat it below this photo of the sign.
