Welcome to my blog!
This blog is primarily devoted to discussions on various aspects of public policy, chiefly economic, business, energy, and environmental policy. It also contains—and its archives are chock full of—photo essays and trip reports from various adventures in the out-of-doors of Montana and New Hampshire. For more information about me, click here.
I few weekends ago I went over to northern Idaho to spend a weekend hiking and fishing with some good friends from Dartmouth. Here are a few pictures.
A couple weeks ago I spent a lovely weekend in Glacier National Park with family. T’was lovely, especially an absolutely gorgeous hike up Sunrift Gorge.
Lately I have been rather nostalgic for this past year’s backcountry fishing trips. Trout occupy my dreams. I would rather be catching dancing trout than drinking Dancing Trout. The forecast is 50 degrees for this Saturday, and I plan to head down the Bitterroot River to try my luck there. But my heart is yearning for the North Fork of the Blackfoot, Upper Rattlesnake Creek, and South Fork of the Flathead. So until then, two pictures from a backpacking/fishing trip last summer, in the middle of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area, two days from the nearest trailhead, but oh so perfectly in the heart of wild cutthroat country.
This is a belated post with pictures from early February. I visiting some good friends from Dartmouth in Jackson Hole, and one day we went up to the Park to get some backcountry skiing in, on a mountain called 25 Short (because the elevation is 9,975 feet). While most of the time I was either too cold, too tired, or too used to low altitude to snap some pictures, I did take a couple.
