Heart Butte

*

A couple of weeks back my sister and her fancy schmancy new camera were visiting, so we decided to go off on a photo safari of the wildest reaches of the Blackfeet Reservation...at least from our perspective. We live on the northeast side and rarely venture to the southwest section, especially the back roads. So we gathered up my cousin Rhonda to be our personal historian/trail guide, since she lives down there. I'll sprinkle some of these photos around the blog over the next few weeks, starting with the area around Heart Butte, which is both a mountain and a town.


Green Lake....I think



Badger Creek canyon



Heart Butte



Jack pines, which were once used to hold burial platforms.



Sun lodge...and one explanation of what they're used for:  Okan
