This is a view of the Flathead Valley, taken from a mountain by Kalispell, Montana (USA). The snowcapped peaks that you see behind the mountains are in Glacier National Park. The mass of buildings that you see have been built on farmland. Unfortunately, land taxes have risen so much it’s impossible for the individual farmer to make a living here now.

This photo was taken in May, 2010 with a Nikon CoolPix P90 camera. I’m uploading this for the Views from the Top challenge in the Scavenger Hunt group.
