62Days #304 Montana Sights

The trip to North Dakota was by train and took us from Portland north to Washington, then east across both Washington and Idaho in the dark of night to Montana. We saw the sun come up over Whitefish Lake (yes I do have photos but among the hundreds I have not yet found the one I want to share). Our trip across Montana went from the west to east and followed along the northern edge of Montana.

The sights were gorgeous, but hard to capture through a dirty train window at 80 miles per hour. As these sights are only seen from the train, I will share them even though they are less than perfect images. If only they would stop the train so I could step out and get a fabulous photo.

As is evident by the golden hills in the foreground, the terrain is steep and the mountains in the distant disappeared behind the rugged hills close to the train. The (probably) white birch trees had lost their leaves and made patterns with their trunks against the gold and brown of the dried ground covers.

Cheers to new sights,
