In traveling to Helena, Kalispell, and Yellow Bay last week, we got a chance to hike two trails in the Swan Mountain Range—The Alpine Trail east of Columbia Falls, and a trail at Holland Lake.  Just wanted to share some pictures.  We’re still relatively dry right now, so try to get out on your favorite trail before the weather gets too nasty.  After that, it’s snowshoe and XC Ski time!
