River bluffs ...

Just a quick photo this morning ... a late-afternoon shot I took a few weeks ago along the Yellowstone River, out in Treasure County. Who says eastern Montana is flat and boring?


  1. Mark - next time you are in this area, take the Rosebud exit (not Rosebud Creek Road, the other one) and drive about 8 or 9 miles on the gravel road to the south. You'll eventually pass the KIKC FM radio tower -- then a couple of miles past that you'll see a telephone microwave tower on the left. If you drive up to that tower, you'll be rewarded with one of the best views in this part of the state -- at night you can see Colstrip, Forsyth, the Rosebud area, and the glow of Miles City all from the same spot!

  2. Sounds good to me, MIke! I'm pretty sure I haven't been on that particular road before, and as you know I love that sort of stuff. And one of my goals for 2010 is taking in another movie at the Roxy. :)

    I took this particular shot from the backroad that runs along the north side of the Yellowstone between Myers and Custer ... it's one of my favorite stretches of the river, partly because it's always kind of been off the beaten path.
