End of this trip...now in an apartment and kind of camping, tho we will be here until beginning of 2012 at least.

Visit our friends, Gayl Teichert & Ernie Franchesci...pics from overlook at the results from removal of Milltown Dam on the Clarkfork River. This was one of the biggest superfund sites in the US due to the accumulation of sediment behind Milltown Dam which contained large amounts of heavy metals (incl. arsenic) from the extensive mining in Butte, Montana over the last 100 years. This project which has been carried out over the past 5 years, was completed last summer/fall and this is the first spring runoff thru the area where the removal of the dam and reclamation took place.
