Flathead River on March 7

Flathead River

Quite a difference from only two weeks ago when ice chunks were piled up across the surface of the river from bank to bank, and quite different from this morning when clouds are sweeping in from the southwest bringing a rain/snow mix again.

  1. Beautiful! I think of Montana as being buried in snow right now, as we are here in VT, especially after a big storm last night.

    • I have been following your storm on the news. Maybe the last big snow of the season? The snow in the valleys of western Montana has mostly melted now, but the Big Mountain Ski area is reporting 151 inches this morning at the summit (6,817 feet).

  4. I can never get over how clear and blue your sky is where you live. It colours the river up nicely in your images.

    • That’s the color of sky when the air is pure. We are about 500 miles inland, so we don’t get the moist ocean air and the nearest really big city is a thousand miles away so we don’t get city pollution. I wish I could say it will always be this way.

  5. Snow and ice can melt so fast when the sun shines at this time of year. I love all that blue!

    • It’s interesting how, at the right light angle, the sky can color the river. I expect at least one more good snow before March is over.This is actually the time of year when our mountains are receiving the most snow.

    • It’s now getting to the point when being outside is quite pleasant, and the color is just beginning to return to the landscaoe.

  8. Those yellowish grasses really add to the pleasure of the scene. In color, they’re almost spring-like. We have a few plants that bloom with that lovely, pastel yellow, and it can be just as nice as the brighter buttercups, daffodils, and so on.

    • It won’t be long now until the new spring greens will begin to show. As the snow melts, the new grass soon replaces it.

    • I often wish that I had a ranch along that stretch of river. The mountains of the Reservation Divide border it on the south too.
