Gary and I spent 4 days backpacking in Rockhouse Canyon a couple weekends ago and I was suprised by all of the bright, beautiful wildflower blooms we saw. Most were at and above the 3,000' level or so, mainly starting around the base of the Santa Rosa ridge line but some extended down into Rockhouse Canyon Valley area. We got rained on 2 days and endured heavy winds most of the trip but it was fun, backpacking in Rockhouse Canyon never gets boring. Water at the springs was lower then normal which was a surprise.

Color photos taken with Garmin Montana 680t GPS.
B/W taken with an Olympus XA 35mm & TMax 100 film developed Pyrocat-HD.



























Happy Mothers Day, I found this balloon heading back to our cars, literally on Mothers Day..!!










Total Mylar Balloons this trip - 9

Nice photos Daren. Is the cairn a random monument, or does it signify something more topographically significant? It looks like it is in the middle of nowhere. smile
