This month’s Midweek Madness Challenge Pick-a-Topic from Cee’s photo sent me searching for pictures of trees against the sky. Here are five I have taken in the last fourteen months.
While spending time with my parents in Montana in May 2021, we took a day trip to visit friends who retired to the family homestead south of Big Timber. Their place is not far from where the East Boulder joins the Boulder River south of McLeod, Montana. What? You’ve never heard of McLeod? I hadn’t either.
The view includes part of the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness. Looking south from the lower pasture, Boone Mountain (or Boone Peak, elevation 8944 feet) is the near mountain behind the willow trees. Morning Star Peak (elevation 9255 feet) is further away on the right. Enos Mountain is off to the left.
Since their property is on both sides of East Boulder River, a bridge is required. There is a road so you don’t have to walk across the bridge. But where’s the fun in that?
Need a seat?
I chose pictures with trees and cropped them square just to share for Becky’s July #TreeSquare challenge.
