“I’m in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana it is love.”
~ John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley
You may recall that Better Half is from the beautiful state of Montana. We made our annual pilgrimage a bit later than usual this year, spending the end of August in one of the most beautiful places on earth. As with all trips, especially those to Montana, I took hundreds and hundreds of photos.
I hate all of them.
I don’t know if I’m out of practice or just experiencing a typical “dip,” but I seriously only have three photos to share from nearly a week in Montana. And even then, I’m only lukewarm about them.
The area in this shot near Red Lodge burned badly several years ago. I loved the contrast of the one tree standing surrounded by the ghosts of the trees that didn’t make it and the sun-scorched, end-of-summer dried grass that was fueling current fires elsewhere across the state.
