Temple Butte in lifting snow-mist.

I couldn’t choose. 🙂

There’s magic in them thar hills.

Temple Butte itself isn’t in Spring Creek Basin; it’s just outside our southeastern boundary. The foreground in these photos IS Spring Creek Basin. The southeastern and eastern parts of Spring Creek Basin Herd Management Area also are part of McKenna Peak Wilderness Study Area – which also extends to the east beyond Spring Creek Basin. (Note: McKenna Peak also is just outside the basin, and it’s visible from this vantage, to the left. With my long lens, I couldn’t fit them both in the confines of one photo – and it was more wreathed in snow-mist. :))
