Fire & Ice Winter In Montana

The beautiful colors at Sunrise and Sunset reflected by the snow always remind me of a mix of fire and ice.

Here is a Sunrise early on January 2nd taken outside my work. 



That same day I had to travel east across the high plains through an amazing scene left by an Ice Fog that had moved in New Years night. We only get those a few times in winter when the conditions are right for fog not often in the dry air of winter and more rarely no wind!

Early Morning Drive

My new car allows me to be more mobile so I can get out and get some new pics to post: happiness!


Adventure Car!! Stylish and oh so fun to drive. its always ready to go.  This morning I got up early and took it for a drive in the Bear’s Paw Mts. south of Havre Montana in Beaver Creek Park. It is the largest county park in the USA and was one part of the Ft Assiboine Military Reservation and supplied water, timber, and hay for the fort. You can still hike the old wagon trail that ran from the fort to the upper reaches of the park. Image

On the way I stopped to take this picture of the rising sun lighting up the snow on the peaks of the Sweet Grass Hills nearly 60 miles Northwest of Havre, gotta love clean Montana air.


Little Red Barn bringing some color to the white landscape. Following are pictures from the drive through the park its scenery and some deer that came out to play in the snow.ImageImage


Color even in winter!
