My photos are mostly of the Western landscape. I try to document the "wide open spaces," and, of course, my photos make things look more attractive than they really are. I generally avoid uploading photos of the classic places because Google Earth will not benefit from more photos of them. Contact me at rmaughan2 AT cableone Dot net

Hi Ralph, I always like a perfect reflection, great photo!

This scenic area burned in 2013. The brush will quickly regenerate, but, of course, the trees take time.

Bruce MacIver,

Thanks! This is a little known and small mountain range that is nice in late May through June. Yes! It is nice until the cattle have taken their toll. The Blackfoot mountains are a mixture of private, state of Idaho and BLM lands with the exception of its southern fringes which are Indian Reservation more or less closed to the public. All but locals by-pass the area in favor of the famous attractions.

Fav. Love the photo, and it brings back memories of climbing Borah.

Greetings J-ryu, Thanks for the visit and the comment. The continental divide works in strange ways with the weather. The wind and the clouds will stay right there all day and not come any closer. A weather friend explained it to me that as the wind rushes down the mountain side it warms up and evaporates the clouds. This warmer air acts as a wall that traps the clouds part way down the canyon. It is a very neat phenomenon. Take care and have a great day. Cheers, Rich

I like this one, Josh. It is beautiful and a hard place to get to.

Bruce MacIver,

This short mountain range was unusually green. I was surprised. We had a normal winter and a very dry springtime beginning about May 1. However, I had noticed that small, stray storms had passed over this quite small area a number of times.
