So far we've had a gorgeous September here in Montana -- warm, sunny days and really pleasant nights -- but I'm seeing more and more signs that those days are numbered. I had to turn the furnace on this morning, and tomorrow's the first day of autumn ... and this morning the most spectacular part of the Going-to-the-Sun Road closed down for the year.
So this is what we're in for, before too long. (This isn't Going-to-the-Sun, though ... it's Looking Glass Hill, just east of Two Medicine. I took it in mid-April a couple of years ago, and it shows what happens when you ignore "Road Closed" signs in that part of the world.)
