It looks like he is wearing a Mystery Ranch pack, stuffed with paint cans!  I’d like to know it felt with liquid on your back swishing around.

Some fats that are good for your heart

I felt that since I was starting my new workout & diet, I should post some thoughts on foods as I was writing out my grocery list.

Some of the best choices for health of your heart are the monounsaturated, omega 3 fats and the polyunsaturated fats.  Fat “doesn’t necessarily” make you fat, studies have shown that it has an essential role in metabolism. 

The Better Fats (Monounsaturated):

  • Avocado
  • Nuts
    • Almonds
    • Cashews
    • Hazelnuts
    • Macadamia nuts

Count of Northern Yellowstone elk rises

BILLINGS (AP) — The Northern Yellowstone elk herd has grown but the number of calves remains one-half to one-third of what wildlife managers would like to see.

A total of 7,109 elk were counted when an annual survey was taken on Jan. 30 and Feb 9 by the Northern Yellowstone Cooperative Wildlife Working Group. That compares to the 6,279 to 6,738 elk counted in the past three winters.

The increase in elk numbers could reflect several factors, including better counting conditions, a reduced hunter harvest and less wolf predation.

The herd’s cow-to-calf ratio last year was 11 calves per 100 cows. Wildlife managers would prefer to see 20 to 30 calves per 100 cows.
