Sagebrush community

Sagebrush community Posted by Picasa

There are miles of this sagebrush on the valley floor of Grand Teton. As I walk through it there are dozens and dozens of brown grasshoppers jumping about. They look a lot like yellow butterflies when they spread their wings, and they produce a loud clicking sound. It's pretty noisy! I was hoping to spy a sage grouse but no such luck.
