A change of seasons

Just a little over two weeks ago when I visited the Corona Lake area, the trees were yellow and gold and the ground was brown. When I returned yesterday the ground was golden and the trees were brown, and a little white had entered the landscape.

These photos were taken about a week ago along Thompson River in northwest Montana and are the last of the best of this season’s fall colors. It has rained ever since, the larch have lost most of their golden needles and the cottonwoods have shed a large part of their leaves. The rain is now providing a good drink for the trees before the ground freezes and they enter the desert-like conditions (from their perspective) of winter.

Rainy day

Rainy day

Sometimes it’s good to just burrow back into the brush and the rocks, under the trees, and enjoy the rain.

White on white

Today on a trip to get supplies, I encountered a section on the hills to the south of Flathead Lake where the trees were covered with a combination of snow and hoarfrost. The trees were white, the ground was white and the sky was white so there wasn’t much contrast, but the trees were beautiful and so I tried a few photos along a little road that left the highway and headed back into the reservation. I couldn’t drive the road today so I just hiked back in a ways. The road is very inviting and so on a sunny day I’ll go back in further with the Jeep and perhaps do better.

Whatever it takes

My son had my Jeep so…

Weeksville Road

Beyond here there were 4 X 4 tracks, snowmobile tracks, deer tracks, elk tracks and one set of boot tracks.

With the slightest breeze the trees were shedding snow.
