Skywatch Friday: From Boston Mass to Butte America

We spent several days back East for our daughter's graduation from Boston University. We enjoyed the lovely skies of the Charles River and Boston city skyline:

And a gorgeous sunset from a dock-side table at the Barking Crab:

Still it was good to come home to the spring storms of our Rocky Mountain home:


And our rapidly-changing skies, such as this mid-day view of Highland Mountains south of Butte, Montana (from our front porch in Walkerville):

Evening view of Highlands:


And this view west to the setting sun and the peaks of the Pintler Wilderness:

Home again.

Your photos show why Montana is 'big sky country'! Beautiful shots, both there and of Beantown.

Your photos of Boston are lovely, and I'm sure you were proud to be with your daughter for her graduation.
But nothing beats Butte America for beauty. I love the photo of the pink sunset glow on the mountains.

Gorgeous photos in Boston and Montana! Those mountains turned pink by the sunset brought back lots of memories of my years in Montana. Hard to beat the beauty there! Hope you have a great weekend. And thanks for the visit and comment, they're always appreciated! Enjoy!

I love Boston (I grew up there) but I think it must have been wonderful to get back to Montana!
