Glowing peaks and green, green valleys
Taken along the Rocky Mountain Front south of Augusta, Montana.
"As we passed on, it seemed as if those scenes of enchantment would never have an end."
This was Meriwether Lewis describing the white cliffs of the Missouri River. As we explored Missouri River country in the past week, his words kept coming to my mind.
M - we have to talk about the Rocky Mountain Front. I've not been in that area since I was a kid. Magical and sacred is right; I couldn't believe the majesty and drama of the plains rolling out of the mountains.
Our destination was Fort Benton, where we stayed two nights. We wanted to see the Missouri River. We didn't get to Heart Butte or the Milk River, but now I want to go back to this area. It was a great trip!
