  2. Wow, wow and double wow! Whereabouts are these mountains? I’m making notes now for our trip to the US in June…

      • I doubt we’ll make it up that far north because of distances and time scale, but thanks for the offer I really appreciate that. We probably won’t get any further north than yellowstone, and even that may not be possible. My biggest difficulty in planning a trip is choosing where we won’t be going to, there’s so much to see. If I may I’ll pick your brains for more suggestions of places to visit when I’ve decided on a rough route. We’re hoping to hire a RV and travel from Arizona, Utah or Montana over to California, taking in as much natural grandeur as possible…so we’ll see…:)

        • I will help in any way I can. You have a lot of territory to cover there!

  5. It looks like the top of the world, where there is no place higher left to go. A favorite spot of natives, I’d guess.

    • There are many peaks like it in this part of Montana. There is an active fire lookout on this one and a road to about a mile from the lookout. Also a trail taht leads back into the roadless area.

  6. A mountain prow, and a sea of clouds. That’s quite a view you’ve got from that upper deck!

    • That particular peak has a road to up near the top, so it was a hike of only about a mile to where the photo was taken.

    • It does feel that way on many of the peaks in this region. It provides a lot of motivation to hike!

  9. I could look at images like this for hours…it’s more rewarding after having climbed the mountain myself, but the photo is wonderful, too. Very nice. I’m enjoying your forays into the archives, Terry.

    • Thanks Candace. I realize that there are so many folks who will never see the scenes that I do and that makes me sad!

    • The river is the Clark Fork of the Columbia which eventually flows into the Pacific Ocean. The mountains from which the photo was taken are the Coeur d’Alenes and the mountains on the other side of the river are the Cabinets.
