A rainy, cloudy, sunny day.

Yesterday morning the weather didn’t look too promising and the forecast was even worse, so rather than going for a wet hike I chose to go for a drive instead and headed east along the lower Flathead river which can be very pretty under the right conditions. I encountered these scenes as the weather changed from rain to sun within about a half hour time period and over the course of 20 miles.

Corona Lake

With overcast skies today and a threat of rain, I was going to devote the day to doing things around the house, but in early afternoon I couldn’t keep from taking a little outing. It was a nice surprise that when I visited this small mountain lake up in the Cabinet Mountains there was a short break in the clouds, just long enough to take a few pictures.

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.
