Early Fall morning in the Bitterroot Valley

I awoke, one morning, to a glorious sight. The fog had settled onto the floor of the Bitterroot Valley. My back yard was bathed in a fine mist and the sun was just beginning to rise above the eastern mountain range.

I love mornings like this...all is peaceful and quiet. It makes you appreciate the wonder of nature all the more.

A Gift From The Heavens

Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty.
There is a way out of every dark mist, over a rainbow trail.
- Navajo Song

Early this morning as the sun was rising from the east, I looked out at the storm slowly approaching over St Mary's Peak located in the Bitterroot Mountains. As I was watching the storm and the lightening, I was lucky enough to see two rainbows form right before my eyes. It was an amazing experience.

Ahh, Big Sky Country, there's nothing like it.

We have had some rather unusual weather this year. From our long and rainy Spring to the recent thunderstoms this summer. I just love the weather here in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana. You never know what you're going to get.

Backyard Splendor

Every now and then the clouds roll in and create a truly unique photogaphing opportunity right from my back yard. This was one of those times. A huge cloud bank had fromed just below Saint Mary's Mountain in the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana.

I love Montana

I have seen much and been many places but I have to honestly say that Montana has to be my favorite place of all. I want to share this photo with you. It was taken by Josh Schutz in the Mission Mountains near Ronan just north of where I live. This photo depicts western Montana at it's finest. The majesty of the Mission Mountains, the old barn which was falling apart and the community restored it, the freshly rolled hay in the field and of course the 'Big Sky' under which it all sits. Just beautiful. I am honored to live in such a beautiful place.
