Montana is a state of extreme weather, and the Hi-Line country often has some of the most difficult weather of all. The wind up there makes everything more dramatic ... especially in the winter, as the snowdrifts constantly grow and shift and make life challenging.
I saw this old house from the train last week, between East Glacier and Browning. It was a dramatic morning -- lots of wind and sun on the prairies, but the Glacier mountains almost completely hidden in the clouds. A quintessential winter day in northern Montana.
