Spikeball With A View

A view down a pebbled shoreline of a lake. Across the water are sun-kissed peaks.

After a long day of spraying weeds, my wildland restoration crew likes to relax. When working around St. Mary, relaxing after work means playing Spikeball with our project partners. We usually play for a little under an hour right before sunset and being in a picnic ground right on St. Mary lake, we are often treated with a beautiful showing of golden lights rising on the mountains as the sun sets. I think I can speak for both of our crews when I say it makes for a pretty nice end to the day.
