Little Glimpses, Rocky Mountain Front, Montana



gone to seed:


translucent catapillar:


 lovely in this stage:


some things are still beginning:

vibrant lichen:

beyond vibrant lichen:


fossil of shells of long ago:

protection of thorns:

not as many flowers, still full of beauty:

cave art from so very long ago:

Beckoning: Montana Roads

last week I wandered in and out of the Rocky Mountain Front
up and down it's dirt roads and trails
taking to heart where the vast Montana prairie meets the foothills
of the Rocky Mountains


not much light as I arrived
all the same I called it home and found it entirely inviting

during the night clouds departed
twinkling of stars filled the dark night sky

 sunrise amongst the volcano reef:


where the prairie and mountains mingle:



wandering amongst the canyons:


the Benchmark wildfire's smoke was in the air:


such a wonderful place to wander

Montana Summer Wildflowers


mist and pink
wearing morning light


pink and green
bathing in forest sunshine


tiny alpine flowers
bathed in spheres of light
