Spring evening

One of the wonderful things about springtime in western Montana is the way the weather (and consequently, the scenery) changes so dramatically within minutes. This evening my friend the Pointer invited me to go for a walk on the road to the Big Hole trail head, and these photos were taken on the hike within about an hour. (The snow on the road was at about 5,000 feet elevation.)

Patrick's Knob 5:24 – Spring snow flurries sweeping the distant Coeur d’Alene mountains.

Big Hole road 5:47 – A mile farther and 400 feet higher at a switchback on the road.

Baldy Mountain 6:21 – The last of today’s sun touching the tops of the Cabinet mountains.
