Artist's Description

Montana Highway 24 runs north-south from the Saskatchewan, Canada border crossing at the Port of Opheim, through Valley County, Montana, crossing the Fort Peck Dam and entering McCone County, only to end at its junction with Montana Highway 200 between the towns of Jordan and Circle, a distance of 134 miles. In its course, it passes through two towns, Opheim, population 85 and Fort Peck, population 233. It just misses Glasgow, the Valley County Seat with a 2010 population of 3,250 and passes by the modern ghost town of St Marie (264 residents on 23 square miles of what used to be the Glasgow Air Force Base). This view is such an iconic view of eastern Montana highways that I used the image as the cover of my Glory of the West, Volume 2 coffee table photo book which showcased Montana Counties 15 to 28. (Valley County is Number 20 in Montana’s numbering system.)

Taken August 27, 2011, near St. Marie, Valley County, Montana, USA.

Nikon D80 dslr, Nikkor 16-85 mm lens set at 16 mm. ISO 100, f /13, 1/20th second. Shot in RAW format, finished in Lightroom and Photoshop CC 2020.
