The other side of the Missions
On November 22, I posted a shot of the Mission Mountains as seen from the east side, in the Swan Valley. Here is the west face of the Missions, in a shot taken in the Flathead Valley in western Montana. The sheer granite wall of this magnificent range rises up from the valley floor with startling suddenness. View this in a large version (see instructions at left) to see the ridiculously diminutive human settlement in the shadow of these peaks.
