Great Horned Owl: Submitted by Rebecca Behrent
Hiking in a small wooded area close to Bozeman, I happened to look up, and there was this great horned owl sitting on the branch of a tree. I had to scramble to get my camera out and feared he would fly away before I could get the shot. I like this photo the best because the owl was watching my dog over his shoulder, and his eye was very big and wide. I went back the next day, thinking the owl was probably gone, but he was still there, just a few trees away from the tree he had been sitting in the day before!
Canyon Creek Charcoal Kilns: Submitted by Norma Russell
Twenty three brick dome structures were used to turn wood from the surrounding hillsides into charcoal between 1884 and 1900. The charcoal was used to fire the smelter at Glendale, 5 miles east of the kilns. This was one of the most productive in the state during its operation, extracting more than $20,000,000 worth of silver and lead mined in the nearby Hecla mining district
