The rock you’re looking at is one of the richest platinum and palladium deposits in the world. It comes from the Stillwater complex, a layered mafic intrusion found today on the northern edge of the Beartooth Mountains, Montana.
There is a place outside of Cody, Wyoming called McCullough Peaks and it is the home of a magnificent herd of wild horses numbering over 120 or so at last count. The terrain is made-up of slight hills and huge sweeping valleys, green at this time of year, dusty and grey as summer progresses and the heat dries out the summer grass and the watering spots.
Is it Friday yet? We definitely know how this red fox feels. 🐺
It’s a leap and a miss for this red fox that was hunting for a snack in Yellowstone National Park’s Hayden Valley. By leaping, the fox avoids the noise of running at the target, which would alert his prey to danger. Better luck next time buddy! Video by Dale Bohlke, National Park Service.
