Skywatch Friday: Mountain Views

A great week of skies, it's been. See the next two posts for lots of wildlife (elk, elk calves, etc) and wildflower pics.

Watching the valley clouds burn off the Highland Mountains south of Butte on a chilly morning:

Enjoying a view of the Pintler Mountain Range from my campsite:

Delighting in the generally crazy cloud formations of a springtime in the Rocky Mountains:

Or taking in the Montana Big Sky views of the high desert:

It's all good.

Yes, it's a good day when you can enjoy those Montana (or Utah) views! Love that unusual cloud formation.

Great shots. Love the crazy cloud formations.
We will be in Western Montana (Polson/Flathead lake area) the week of July 10+. Maybe we could meet up in butte or so???? MB

Indeed it is. We're going camping next week as the spirit moves us. I'm mulling the idea of going up to look at the Garrison dam. Maybe....
The spring creeks are very high here now, clear and the best flyfishing in several years. :)

That cloud shot is pretty great.

These are all so neat. Since you have it, and we don't I will say the snow only adds to the beauty of each scene.

Fabulous views. I think someone has stolen my Rocky Mountains these past couple of weeks, the clouds are so low and wet, my views have all but disappeared. thanks for the reminder!

lovely! I've always been impressed with the Montana skies, every time I've passed through there.
