We paddled from Groton Bridge to the US border in late June. Any later and water levels would be a bit suspect.

Gee, I like that! You captured the stuff that makes the trip so different from what I am used to here in Ontario. I am itching to check that out some time in the future, just gotta make sure my better half doesn't see some of these pics... :wink:

Looks to be very green still

Doesn't look like any rattlesnakes in the pics. Did you see any?

Do you mean Coffin bridge?

thanks for sharing

It was a great trip.

As for the mud ball - it was a large round rock with really odd cracks, they were quite common.

And as for rattlers, if you look closely at photo 115 there is one under the grass. I need to add better captions to those photos still.

This is old stuff, formed within the shales. Take a look at http://geology.cwru.edu/~huwig/catalog/ ... .%20.1.jpg

The cracks are a result of weathering once these concretions were exposed.

Thanks! Most folks do the Milk River (town) to Writing on Stone - that trip is logistically easier compared with the route we took; but I would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to experience the wild prairie.
