    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.
