The Bacon Rind Fire, 20 miles south of Big Sky.

Forest fire south of Big Sky

The lightening sparked Bacon Rind Fire is burning on the Custer Gallatin National Forest in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness about two mile west of Highway 191 between Bacon Rind and Snowslide Creeks near the boundary of Yellowstone National Park. The fire is estimated at about five acres in size and is burning in timber and grass.

Wilderness from the sky

In an ongoing effort to generate public support for a number of local Wilderness Study Areas, the Montana Wilderness Association organized a flyover of various WSAs located south of Big Sky on July 9. The flyover was made possible by the generous donation of flight time in a Cessna 210 operated by EcoFlight out of Colorado.

Burned into memory

In late June of 1988, I had ridden into the high country near Haystack Peak north of Yellowstone with a group of Montana State University professors to photograph their study on the grasses of the high alpine meadows.
