Thompson River: the last three photos

I surely hope the title isn’t prophetic!

It’s kind of obvious why I spend so much time there!


  1. All you need to make this picture complete is a lawn chair, a fishing pole, and a bucket of beer.

  2. So as not to disturb the surroundings, that’s where I’m going to build my invisible house.

  3. Ahhh…I haven’t visited your page in a while, and the photos and stories are so welcoming as I sit in lower Manhattan listening to wrecking balls; cranes–the sounds of construction and destruction. This afternoon, I will be back in the beautiful Hudson Valley, but for now, I’ll just sit by this river and enjoy.
    Thank you!
    Warm blessings,

  4. Well, Malcolm, I can put together all of those. Coming up?

  5. Ah, Pinhole,

    would that it could be that easy! I guess that’s why I favor tents in this kind of area, although I’d set a little further up on the mountain. There is a spot not far from here where I’ve always thought I would like to have my house, but, of course, that would spoil the whole thing. A tent though and a limited stay…

  6. Sandy,

    Thanks for the visit!

    Although I’ve never been to New York, I know what you mean. I know you are used to both the very urban and the rural. I’m quite sure, were I to visit Manhattan, I would appear like a caged animal. I just completed a two day trial as a Federal juror in Missoula, which is now a town of about 70,000. In spite of the fact that the parking garage and the courthouse were only 2 blocks apart, it took the intensity of the trial to keep me focussed away from the confinement of even that small city, and it felt so good to see all that disappear in the mirror this afternoon!

  7. Beautiful images Terry, hopefully they won’t be the last shots of this magnificent unspoiled place.

  8. Well, they won’t be the last, Bernie, but this area can conceivably fall to the sword of the developer, and soon at that. I’m actually surprised that it hasn’t already begun. I guess the price isn’t right yet.

  9. This is beautiful (I think I like these photos the best) as it’s been pointed out this looks like the worlds most welcoming spot. Beautiful. 😉 I think if this was in my backyard I’d be visiting often as well.

  10. This summer the road through here was closed because of the Chippy Creek fire, so I didn’t get there often. This is also right in the area where I can usually find a moose and certainly a ton of mule deer. The fishing isn’t like it was many years ago, but during the spawn, there are a lot of big trout which come up from the Clark’s Fork and there are a couple of weeks of excitement!
