Out and About in Bozeman - Drinking Horse Trail

Last weekend we went for a hike, and I suggested Drinking Horse Trail out by the Fish Technology Center. I had never been in the winter. And I must say it was an excellent choice. The trail if followed all the way to the top is not too long, but it does have a way to loop across half way up for an even shorter hike. It's a very beautiful hike with plenty of opportunity for scenic views along the way. I highly recommend it.

The small insects at the bottom are springtails. They are called snow fleas as well. I can't tell from the description in my Audubon book if they are technically snow fleas though as they are not supposed to come this far west.
