Flathead, Ninepipes, Mission Mountains

We stopped on the Flathead Indian Reservation to go to the Ninepipes Wildlife Refuge and the National Bison Range. More beautiful scenery and animals, but hardly any people -- a welcome change. We could see bison from our hotel window.
At Ninepipes we saw tons of birds including hawks, geese, ducks, sandhill cranes, swans, and pelicans. I had no idea pelicans go to Wyoming. But there they were.

At the National Bison Range the bison were all elsewhere, and the highlight was actually the other animals, such as these bighorn sheep.
