  1. That sapphire sky overwhelms the mountains! I love the “cragyness” of these mountains.They’re newer mountains that point sharply at the sky.

    • Yes, they are “newer”, very rocky and steep. The taller ones are over 10,000 feet.

    • It was pretty, but I was not entirely happy with the light. It is supposed to clear up again in a few days and I will try again.

  5. Not a gas station in sight. This is what makes Montana so beautiful. Miles and miles of natural landscape.

    • Yes, it is! I remember liking it when I was just a child and Dad told me its name.

  7. Plenty of snow there! I hope it’s enough to ward off another drought.

    • The name “Montana” comes from Spanish and means “mountains”. I have loved these all of my life.

    • It’s beautiful scenery, but difficult to show it in perspective. The photos was taken from an elevation of about 2,500 feet: the tall peaks are 20 miles away and nearly 10,000 feet.

    • It’s a fairly small range of mountains, but a very pretty one. A lot of it has wilderness designation too.

  13. It’s a beautiful range. I noticed the cragginess, too. Those sharp peaks truly do make for a wonderful photo. The bit I read about them mentioned three-sided, or pyramidal peaks — that would be something to see. I hope you get your weather and your skies for a closer look.

    • I’ll see what the weather permits. One of my favorite viewing spots for the Missions is from what is called “Red Sleep Mountain Drive”, a road that loops through the National Bison Range, but because of snow that road doesn’t open until mid to late May.

  14. I love this photo. My country do not have mountains, but only Arctic hills. It is to me always a great joy to see mountain photos. Thank You.
