Cube Iron (5)

Toward the top of the peak the trail becomes quite steep and therefore the altitude increases rapidly, changing the perspective and bringing more of the distant mountains into view. By the time I reached the peak, the sky became cloudy and the changing light conditions created brand new images. It’s impossible to stop taking pictures. By the time I returned to the trail head I was glad that I was prepared for rain.

In several of these photos you can see a bit of a deep and distant valley. It’s the valley of the Clark Fork of the Columbia River and the nearest highway, Montana Highway 200, runs through there along the river.
