A little snow left

Mission Mountains

~ The Mission Mountains ~

(Photo taken from the Big Hole access road in the Cabinet Mountains, range of about fifty miles.)

Pacific Trillium

(Couldn’t resist posting one more Trillium shot.)


  1. Oh wow! What beautiful jagged, snowy peaks of the The Mission Mountains. And you shot this about fifty miles away? Neat! Lovely Trillium opened with a happy face. 🙂

    • The Missions are really a beautiful range. They are home to many Grizzlies and on a good year have snow caps all summer long.

  2. the trillium is our provincial flower, yet I see so few of them. so I’ve been enjoying your shots of them.

    • There are quite a few in this area, especially in the canyons of small streams. I have a couple of special spots that I make a point of visiting year after year.

    • In summer I spend as much time as possible in the high places where there are many views like that. It does wonders for my general feeling of well being.

  5. A little snow? How long does the snow last at the highest elevations? The trillium is a bit more to my liking, considering it’s the end of April!

    • In a normal year, some of the snow on those peaks will last all year long. This year it will all melt.
