Today I am thankful for warm weather in October! We just spent a wonderful weekend camping out in our favorite spot, across the Flathead River from Glacier National Park. It was sunny and warm yesterday, rained last night, and then warmed up for the day. I love Indian Summer! This photo was taken at the end of last year’s Autumn, which usually closes with snow on Halloween.

This is the view behind the apartments that are across the street from us. This is about as colorful as Autumn gets here. We basically have two seasons in northwestern Montana: Hot, when everything is green and Cold, when everything is green and covered with snow. That’s Columbia Mountain in the background, part of the Rockies, and it divides the Flathead Valley from the Hungry Horse Reservoir.

Photo taken October 30, 2010 in Columbia Falls, Montana (USA) with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera.

    Your weather is much like ours. This is a wonderful capture; I love that you allowed so much sky in the photo.

  • Thanks, Susan! I loved those clouds and couldn’t bear to crop them out.

    I like your view, sure beats mine!!!

  • Thank you! It is beautiful here, but I miss the beautiful fall colors of deciduous trees. We have a few scattered ones, in peoples’ yards, but don’t have the quilted blanket look of the eastern states.

    Gorgeous shot – there was snow on the mountains here the other day but it has all melted again – 89F today!

  • Lucky you! We haven’t seen 89 degrees since August.
