Thompson River

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.

Fishing season opened here on Saturday and today on this stretch of water I caught enough Brown Trout to make a very nice meal for an old friend. That’s a good day.

On the threshold of winter

This time of year in western Montana as the weather changes, the mood also changes, often from day to day. Today it appeared to be on the threshold of winter.
