BLM didn't have funding to conduct Sage Grouse research this year but, luckily, I was asked to help with a similar project in another part of the state. After stopping to visit family in Three Forks

and pay my respects to the Blue Pony, star of the 2013 edition

I headed east on I-90 and hung a left just past the Crazies

Mountains get a bit smaller further up the road, but no less interesting (don't know what I hit to remove the color)

Camera did the same thing again when I got into town; weird

I know I'm gonna eat healthy here

First morning out
