Jimmy took this picture last summer in Jewel Basin, which is in the Rocky Mountains above Big Fork, Montana (USA). This range separates the Flathead Valley from the Hungry Horse Reservoir. It used to be a great place to find huckleberries but several years of drought and damage done by people using pickers have destroyed the crops in that area.

Photo taken in August, 2010 with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera. Photo is straight from the camera. The only processing done was to run it through a DeJPG filter to get rid of jpg artifacts to make better prints.

  • I hope you enjoy yourself. My son, Shaun, just came by after fishing in Glacier Park. He said the fishing is bad right now because of the high water and that some of the creeks are flooding. The roads are still passable, though.

    I think you just bursted my bubble…oh no~…Yikes~~~

  • I wouldn’t worry too much. Shaun is a notoriously terrible fisherman. He can fish all day and catch nothing, while his brother can catch several fish right next to him. I think it’s because he doesn’t have any patience. If you plan on doing any fishing, I can ask around for the best spots.
