    Ralph-

    I took great joy in seeing these wonderful tunnels this summer. They put a smile on my face. I also like how the fencing funneled the animals to the proper crossing area. Also, I believe one of the crossings I saw was a bridge.

    This is the human race evolving in a positive direction. This is the right thing to do. Such an awesome area too.

    I was driving between Missoula and Glacier, and also spending time at the Bison Range.

    Missoula is a heck of a town.

    They just finished one of these on my route to work where about 80 elk and dear are killed each winter. Hope it really cuts that number down.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
