|Location of Picabo in relation to Yellowstone to the east and Boise to the west.|
The nearest flowing stream is Silver Creek, a scenic spring-fed tributary of the Little Wood River, a key source of irrigation water for eastern Blaine County. The pristine Silver Creek is renowned among fly fisherman and was a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, who enjoyed hunting and fishing along the stream with local rancher Bud Purdy. The name "Picabo" supposedly derives from a Native American term translated as "silver water".

|Two magnificent horses|
|One decided to look at me.|

|Katie wanted to "talk" to the sheep in the field in front of our coach but they were too shy.|
