Looming ...

We've had a series of very warm, classically-summer days here in Bozeman lately ... lots of sun, and the temperature in the 90s. But yesterday was cooler, and I felt that unmistakable tinge of early autumn -- a feeling that every Montanan senses sometime in August.

So in honor of that, I thought I'd post a photo ... to acknowledge what we all know lies ahead. I shot this a couple years ago, on Highway 89 a few miles north of Wilsall.


  1. NO NO NO!!! MARK! If you acknowledge that we all caught a whiff of autumn you're just inviting fall in!!! I want it to stay summer for a LONG time!!!

  2. I feel exactly the same way you do, Courtney, and it breaks my heart ... but we've just gotta face it: Montana summers are ridiculously short, and there's nothing we can do about it.

    But that's what makes them so special, right?
