Flathead River pictures

Here are a couple of pictures I took today of the Flathead River south of Flathead Lake in Montana. A snow storm moved through last night. So much for Fall..

I disturbed some ducks as I walked down to the shore. You might have to click on the photo if you want to see the ducks.

Thanks Jules. It really is a beautiful place any time of year.

Wow. Those photos are so gorgeous!

It looks pretty chilly though. :(

Thanks Diane. The cold weather didn't bother the ducks any. The air was still and the sun came out. It was chilly but I'm just glad the hot weather is finally over.

Truly a splendid shot at the bottom with the snow and ducks. I've been admiring it. Wasn't that storm something? You'd think I'd be used to sudden changes after 40 some years. We have enjoyed your blog and will come visit again. Happy to meet your acquaintance. We were able to take our canoe onto Flathead yesterday morning...

Thank you. I greatly admire your pictures.

I learned to sail on Flathead Lake in my neighbors Morley cedar sailing canoe built at Swan Lake. I've just found interest in canoeing again.

I've been looking through your photos, these are breathtakingly beautiful. Do you go there alone? Are you geographically close to this place? I would love to run here.

Very very jealous.

Thank you for the kind words. It's a beautiful place.

It takes me 3-4 hours to drive into Montana to where I'm from as I'm just across the Idaho panhandle to the west. So I'm driving into the Rocky Mountains when I go there.

Montana's a big state so people are used to driving. The roads are good and there isn't much traffic, but there are two Mountain passes and it can be difficult in the winter. Some of the roads have almost no traffic on them.

Lately I've been going there alone but I know people when I get there and I have family and childhood friends there.

I've read you blog from time to time and I enjoy it.
