Mission Mountains

The Mission Mountain range runs north and south for about 30 miles through western Montana. Most of it is in the 74,000 acre Mission Mountains Wilderness Area. McDonald Peak is the highest point in the range at 9,280 feet, not especially high, but an awesome sight from the low valleys. (This photo was taken from an altitude of about 2600 feet along the lower Flathead River, about 25 miles away.)

The Missions

My effort to reach the trail head for Big Hole Peak Sunday was stopped by a couple of feet of snow on the road at about 6000 feet, but en route, this view of the Mission Mountains made the attempt worthwhile. I like the perspective of seeing that range from a high elevation at a distance of about 55 miles.

Distant views

The sky was quite clear yesterday as I headed up toward Big Hole peak, and the Mission Mountains some forty miles to the northeast looked much closer than they were. Each time there was a little clearing through the trees I took another picture.
