Green hills and jagged peaks
Due to some unforeseen happenings, I was able to spend only 36 hours in these magnificent valleys bordering the Bitterroot Range in western Montana. But I have a few shots that I will post in upcoming days.
The plan was to meet two cousins for explorations in and around Jackson, Montana, in the Big Hole Valley, a pristine place if there ever was one. On the way to the rendezvous, I drove down the Bitterroot Valley. These lush green foothills were a nice contrast with the jagged peaks that rose in the distance. This is the mountain range that almost destroyed the Lewis and Clark expedition before it could find a path to the west coast.
