Prettyboy Reservior is a 1600 acre lake with a surrounding watershed buffer of 2100 acres. There are several maintained fire trails and a number of hiking trails that link the fire trails together on the south shore. The north shore has a few hiking trails mostly being fire trails There is no complete north shore trail. Thus there is a lot of bushwacking. Typically this involves the use of deer trails and sometimes rabbit trails. These are the pictures from these ramblings. You will see what catches my eye, sometimes insteresting and sometimes disgusting. I am amazed that an empty six pack is too heavy to carry out while a full six pack is light enough to carry in. Now I have to ask which is worse for the environment; a glass bottle or a plastic bottle? a steel beer can or an aluminum can? how long will a mylar balloon last? a folding chair or a deer stand nailed to a tree? If you know what any of the un-named flowers are send me an email. I ramble her, just view the pics.

Pictures are in no particulare order, nor are the subjects accurately named, someday maybe.

Points to remember when rambling.

Trails only lead to places already discovered.
The worst weather days are best when enjoyed outside.
