Pat and RolyTheDog on the way to the Big Hole River, over the Continental Divide, a half-hour from Butte America.
A group of Big Hole Watershed Committee members talking AND listening -- this is how it ONCE was. This is why I once believed in the watershed committee as a collaborative, consensus-based process. That was then.
"Time is a river I go a-fishing in" (Thoreau) It's a nice river. If we can keep it. There is a 24" brown just below that rock on the lower right. A black bear is coming down through the stringer of trees in the upper center. An otter plays in the pool next to the big rock at the lower left. Welcome to the Big Hole River, my home water.
