Sometimes, zooming around in the wild blue yonder can be rather phantasmagoric (a word I learned from my beautiful co-pilot and partner Janey. Definition: having a fantastic or deceptive appearance, as something in a dream or created by the imagination.) One minute you're on the ground in stormy lush green Choteau, Montana, and in the next few hours you are over a totally new environment such as the red rocks of Moab, Utah. Or perhaps the jungles of Belize one day, and a few days later flying over the snowcapped peaks of Colorado.

The longest ungulate migration ever recorded in the lower 48 was recently discovered by a group of researchers at the University of Wyoming. Migration routes of mule deer were found to extend 150 miles from the Red Desert via the Wind River Range to its northernmost point of Hoback Junction in the Wyoming Range. The future integrity of these herds depends on their ability to migrate seasonally from low elevation winter ranges to high elevation summer ranges.
