Visiting the Rocky Mountain Front in autumn.

This is Ear Mountain, which is west of Choteau, Montana.  It got it's name from the old fur trappers, who thought the shape of the mountain resembled the ear of an elephant.  It was quite cold, windy and beautiful along the Front yesterday.  
My friend, Bianca and I were hoping for a great sunshiny day, but the weather produced grey clouds.  That's the way the weather goes in Montana, you never know!  So get on with it and do your thing....:)

We took photos in spite of the lack of light and had a great time doing it.

This is Bear.  He loves the water!  It didn't matter to him that the water was near freezing, deep, and swift.  He plunged into the Teton River like it was child's play, chasing sticks and rocks we threw for him.

This is how it looks before you get to Blackleaf Canyon.  The fall colors were quite beautiful, and seemed to march along at the base of the mountain.  A storm was moving in over the mountain and we had some bouncing light going on.

All in all, it was a beautiful day, and I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the photos.  I'm posting more in my Etsy shop.  Montana Nature Photos
