Driving to Gardiner

The small town of Gardiner, MT is located 5 miles north of Mammoth Hot Springs. I drive here pretty often to buy groceries at the Food Farm, the only grocery store in town. Gardiner has zero traffic lights, only one stop sign, and only one chain restaurant - a Subway that is located in one of the 2 gas stations in town. There is a post office, 4 churches, and several gift shops and rafting companies.

However, the drive can be pretty exciting. You never know what you'll see.

On one trip, there were big horn sheep on the cliffs over the Gardner River.

Another time, I saw this wolf on an elk kill at the Chinese Gardens on the Gardner River.
As soon as the wolves are full and walk away, the birds descend. Just so happened that an EAGLE is in the area.
