Beartooth Reflections Index


Lost history

I'm on my way to rediscover a bit of personal history. As a young man I embarked on a road trip...


The lure of astrofishing

 Beartooth Café in Cooke City Montana (just over the border as the road wanders north out of Wyoming) has good food, good music, and an outdoor porch. Have I been here before?


The Top of the World

I encounter the turnoff to the first of two vehicle-accessible lakes. It instantly tests the mettle of would-be sportsmen by becoming a gravel washboard.


Sharing the soul of the night

At the boat launch, the sunset displayed clouds lacing the horizon, but everywhere else was pure sky.


An astrophotographer in the dark

I had several targets I wanted to shoot this night, and the first one was M80 and M81, a pair of galaxies that could fit in a single view, faint swirls of light framed by the foreground stars of the Big Dipper.
