"YELLOWSTONE TWILIGHT"
Take from Norm’s Island along the Yellowstone River near Billings on Winter Solstice 2012, this scene could be of just about any wild and free-flowing river in Montana, a.k.a. “The Last Best Place”. Ice jams predominate in the foreground of the image, but what caught my eye after developing the picture was the reflection of trees and the sunset in the small open channel of water to the right. A special thank you for this photo goes out to our close friend Clint, for showing us one of his favorite Billings nature spots!

"WINTER IN YELLOWSTONE"
A long-dead stand of lodgepole pine trees huddle alongside a thermal-fed stream that meanders through this dreamy winter image. This photo was taken just as the morning sun began piercing through the overnight, sub-zero fog, but what drew me to the scene were the myriad snow and ice covered patterns along the stream bank, on nearby vegetation, and on the snags themselves.

"WINDSWEPT"
Offering a slightly different perspective than the view in “Solitude Ridge”, I was drawn to how the foreground resembled a cross-cut of what might lay underneath the live and standing dead aspen and Douglas fir trees, and how fallen trees and other organic matter further enriches the soil that in turn gives life to countless beings above, within and below the surface, no matter where our feet are.

"VIEW FROM STUART PEAK"
Stuart Peak is a 4,500 foot elevation gain, 18-mile day hike in the Rattlesnake Wilderness just north of Missoula. The views from the summit make it all worthwhile, but be sure to get a very early start and bring plenty of water, and schedule doing nothing but recovering for the following day…

Not far from where U.S. Highway 212 traverses rugged Beartooth Pass at 10,947 feet, jagged peaks, incredible views and massive snowfields await summer visitors, and even a few daring skiers, when the “Beartooth Highway” is open (generally from Memorial Day to mid-October). Look closely to find two intrepid skiers toward the bottom right of the photograph (and no, they are not Erik and yours truly!)

"OLD MAN WINTER"
I hardly ever take pictures of wildlife in Yellowstone, as they are usually moving way too fast for me and my lens. This lone bull bison proved to be an exception one sub-zero winter morning just north of Old Faithful, as he conserved his energy while waiting for us to pass by in our snowcoach. This image looks fantastic as an 8” x12” or 11” x 17” signed print, as you can see greater details of the bison’s face and body, and of the surrounding landscape.

"INDIAN PAINTBRUSH"
Indian Paintbrush, also known as “Prairie Fire”, gets its color from bracts that encircle the actual flower. They range across much of Western North America and their colors can range widely, too-including purple, orange, yellow, and red, such as the one in this image. Indian Paintbrush epitomizes summer in the Northern Rockies to many residents and visitors alike, and it is also Wyoming’s official state flower.

"BEAVER PONDS TRAIL"
The Beaver Ponds Trail is a wonderful, five-mile, family-friendly loop hike starting near Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone. An initial short, steep trail section soon levels out for commanding views of neighboring mountain ranges, then winds through forests and grasslands en route to The Beaver Ponds. This trail is also great for birds and birders, and is especially enjoyable in spring and fall.

"BIG SNOWIES VISTA"
The Big Snowies, one of Montana’s “island ranges”, soar to well over 8,000 feet in central Montana. Approximately 120,000 acres in the Big Snowies are designated as roadless or wilderness study areas, and numerous ice caves dot the range as well. On clear days, backcountry visitors savor expansive views toward Canada to the north, and the Absaroka and Beartooth ranges of Greater Yellowstone to the south. This late June photo was taken looking north toward Lewistown and the Judith Mountains.

"GLACIER NATIONAL PARK"
This image offers a different perspective than seen in “Glacier Country”. Dense forested hillsides, unnervingly steep ravines, and the palpable, vast wild character of this part of Glacier National Park beckon you to explore the basin just beyond and below containing Upper Kintla Lake, and the shimmering peaks and glaciers in the distance.

"GLACIER COUNTRY"
Glacier National Park and the U.S. Northern Continental Divide have long been sculpted by glaciers, wildfire, erosion and other forces of nature, as is evident in this view looking across Upper Kintla Lake toward Kintla and Harris glaciers.

In lands long considered sacred by Blackfeet, Salish and Kootenai Native American cultures, park policies and public attitudes have shifted largely toward letting natural wildfires burn, and to allowing large predators to roam and flourish again. Human caused climate change, though, has become a huge unruly force of its own, and its impacts are quite palpable here, as warming temperatures continue to shrink, diminish and in some cases obliterate the region’s remaining glaciers.

"COUNCIL OF CEDARS"
Western red cedar groves can be particularly inviting on hot summer days in Montana west of the Continental Divide, as temperatures are often 10 to 20 degrees cooler here. Soaring to heights of 150 to 175 feet and with diameters ranging from two to eight feet, these trees can also live for 1,000 years. This image looks gorgeous as a larger format hand-signed print, alongside larger, signed images of “Cedar Sentinel” and “Old and New Growth”.

"FLATHEAD SUMMER"
This summer view is not far from where Starvation Creek feeds into the North Fork of the Flathead River. We hiked past a quite a few piles of bear and wolf scat en route to the river and on our way back from the confluence spooked a sub-adult black bear that fled through the woods!

At the confluence we briefly jumped into the frigid waters and then re-warmed ourselves on a gravel bar beach, enjoying the still strong sun, mild breezes, billowing, fast-moving clouds, and views upstream reminiscent of wild lands stretching to Alaska and The Yukon.

"FRINGED GENTIANS"
These western fringed gentians (Gentiana defensa) were photographed alongside a streamside meadow not far from Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone’s Midway Geyser Basin.

The flower’s Latin name refers to its fringed, or clipped, petals. The fringed gentian is Yellowstone National Park’s official flower, as it is usually found in and around the park’s extensive thermal areas.

"GRAND PRISMATIC SPRING"
This perspective of Grand Prismatic Spring was taken from a hilltop just off the Fairy Falls Trail, and provides a considerably different vista in contrast to boardwalk views of the spring from Yellowstone’s Midway Geyser Basin.

One of the world’s largest intact remaining hot springs, Grand Prismatic is approximately 200 feet across and over 100 feet deep, yet all of Yellowstone’s thermal features remain vulnerable to human disruptions and impacts such as littering and vandalism .Colors closer to hot spring edges are generally microbe-colored mineral deposits, while colors in the spring itself usually indicate the presence of heat-thriving organisms known as thermophiles.

“Grand Prismatic Spring” is one of four images and meditations in the new Earth Meditation and Notecard set.

Kinnerly Peak is a prominent mountain in Glacier’s Livingston Range, rising over a mile in elevation from the shores of Upper Kintla Lake.

Glacier National Park at times offers mellow and fairly flat hiking possibilities, and trails running along both sides of McDonald Creek east of Lake McDonald fit the bill.

"OLD AND NEW GROWTH"

I really love this juxtaposition of an old-growth Western red cedar (Thuja plicata) growing alongside some much younger lady ferns (Athyrium filix femina).Thankfully, many of western Montana’s remaining old growth cedar groves were either in places too steep to log, or they had avid early defenders and supporters

For many people, cedar groves exude peace, calm, quiet and contemplative space.

"SUMMER ON THE SNAKE"

Floating or rafting the Snake River on a summer afternoon with the Grand Tetons towering in the background is a real and rare treat, especially when you’re free to enjoy the scenery and your hands are free to take photographs!

Being on the river is also an excellent vantage point to look for moose, black bears, osprey, bald eagles, deer, beavers, and other critters. The Snake River originates not far from Two Ocean Plateau in Yellowstone National Park, and meanders over 1,000 miles before joining the Columbia River in Washington State, while the Tetons are one of North America’s youngest mountain ranges.

"UPPER KINTLA LAKE, GLACIER NATIONAL PARK"

It’s a long day hike to Upper Kintla Lake from the (Lower) Kintla Lake campground and Boulder Pass Trailhead, so consider getting a backcountry permit ahead of time and then camping here for a spell. You’ll be glad you did, as the climb up to or back down from spectacularly scenic Boulder Pass is a long, steep and grueling one!

Common loons, numerous woodpecker species, bald eagles, ospreys, bats, owls often provide the background music both here and on Lower Kintla Lake, but also remember to be very bear and cougar aware , as nearly all of Glacier is prime grizzly, black bear and mountain lion habitat. Upper Kintla Lake is also home to the endangered bull trout and is closed to fishing.

Sagebrush, native grasses and willows give way to aspens and conifers at higher elevations in Yellowstone National Park’s Northern Range, which provides critical winter habitat to elk, bison, and other ungulates. Autumn is superb for visiting this and other parts of Yellowstone, due to fewer visitors, cooler, usually drier weather, and both predators and prey species very much on the move.

Boom and bust mining operations and their aftermaths go hand-in-hand with Montana’s relatively short settlement history, as is the case with Garnet Ghost Town, a once thriving gold mining settlement of 1,000 inhabitants toward the close of the 19th century. The Bureau of Land Management operates a visitor center and self-guided interpretive trails during the summer months at Garnet, the best preserved and least commercialized ghost town in Big Sky Country, and adventurous folks can ski or snowmobile there during the winter months.
