Springtime in the Grasshopper

I had to go to the next valley over (the Big Hole Valley) to Jackson this morning; it was a glorious morning, so I grabbed my camera on my way out the door. Fortunately! This is an image of the traditional haystackers called beaver slides with the Bitterroot Mountains in the background. Awesome!
The Hairpin Ranch is one of the major ranches in the Big Hole.
An abandoned homestead in the Big Hole.
This is a long view of the East Pioneer Mountains which forms the eastern side of the Grasshopper Valley. Still lots of snow up there!
Baldy Mountain is the backdrop for these cows soaking up some sunshine.
An old hay wagon at the edge of a hayfield. Looks like a super hay crop this year! Lots of rain. . .
Another beaver slide hay stacker also used in the Grasshopper Valley. Beautiful green grass. The willow bushes are just beginning to bud out. What a beautiful day it was!
