Sometimes the view through the window is so awesome, you have to try to capture it, even though the lighting and movement may not be conducive to photography.

On I-90, from Belle Fourche, SD to Sheridan, WY, we had our first glimpse at the snow-crowned Rockies.

  A couple days later, we were headed north from Helena,Mt on I-15.  The Interstate roughly parallels the Missouri River and goes through some fantastic landscape.

Very seldom do you see the landscape along Interstate highways as outstanding as it has been for us the past few days.

As I write this, we are camped at Cut Bank, MT where the curiously named Cut Bank Creek River has cut a winding gorge.  We camped here last year in August for several days.  If you would like to see the blog posting for that visit, CLICK HERE.
