Exhibit Posted by Picasa

Lolo Pass was known by the Indians as "Sea of green at the top of the mountains." So poetic. I also love the names of the months that the Native Indians used. There is a list of them here. You need to scroll down a bit. They are beautiful phrases some of them, and descriptive.

wow, that site linked is really interesting! I'm going to get a list of Michigan natives and look up what they called things. I was tickled to see the regional variations in crop / month names. I guess it makes sense. You could almost pick the primary tribe of our area from the crop list :)
