Rocky Mountain Front ~ Montana

Some things I don't believe I will ever tire of... Sunflowers~
 Old Fences~
Clear Blue Skies~
 And Big Sky Country.  Especially across the Rocky Mountain Front.  This is a day trip we took a couple weekends ago, heading west along the Front, into the Sun River Canyon, and Gibson Dam, which is likely the only viable source of water for this incredibly large and irrigated rural area, known for it's quality alfalfa hay and spectacular wheat & barley production.
 The area shown pictured above is the famous Elk Winter Range, and a Montana State-regulated refuge.  Like many places across America, we have had a dry, dry, summer, as you can see from the landscape.  Hay prices are skyrocketing, as well as most everything else these days. {pretty soon we won't be able to afford corn chips?!}
There's just a bare hint of green left facing north, as we got closer to the Mountains.
Beautiful wildflowers~ 



We love traveling the beautiful back roads of Montana.  I have more pictures {surprise!} of our Day in the Country!


EnJOY your day --- in the country... or not!

Thanks for sharing your pictures with us Leslie! It is inspiring to see the landscapes from places other than my own area. Athough we have had record-breaking heat here, we have received an amazing amount of rain in the past week, which has helped to make up our rain deficit. I'm praying you will begin to get some of that wonderful rain out there in your "neck of the woods" =^..^=

It took me a bit to identify, but I really miss it when I don't see wide open spaces. I'm a prairie girl. No ups on my horizon but this is quite lovely. here's to UP!
