VivaLaVida in Montana

A long time that I didn't post some picture here, so it's time to do it ! ;-)

VivaLaVida crossed Montana last June on her way to Alaska...


1. Bannack Ghost Town, really well preserved.

3. A young great owl hidden in a tree (not sure of the specie's name in English).

6. Shower over Upper Medicine Lake

8. Along St Mary Lake.

9. Trying to reach some glacier, I had to give up because of a bunch of snow that was still on the trail.

Hope you're gonna enjoy it.

Nice Claude! More, more, more!

Oh, here in the South we call that a 'hoot' owl. I know, I know, but we try to keep it simple. Maybe a little too simple. I think that particular one would be a 'fuzzy' hoot owl.

Bannack SP/Ghost town added to the go-to list!

Re: VivaLaVida in Montana

As an amateur photographer I always enjoy your posts Claude. I've been following your blog since late summer and look forward to reading it and finding out where you are and what you are doing.
The images are always good and the back roads you travel are beautiful and inspiring.

Do you have a destination and a time frame?

Mike

Re: VivaLaVida in Montana

Claude-Alain, I just spent a wonderful hour exploring your blog. Absolutely beautiful pictures. I read with my Utah Atlas and Gazetteer open so I could mark all of the places I now need to go see. I'm thinking I need to make an annual trip to Moab . . . maybe even more than once per year. There is so much to see in that area. Dang! I knew I should have got a 4-wheel conversion on my SMB.

Re: VivaLaVida in Montana

Thanks to you all guys ! Espacially to gnty for the link to my blog! And to those who will look at it, sorry for my poor English version, my English is what it is...

You can also take a look to my picture gallery at http://www.instants-chosen.com

Macmcintire, you're right, Utah has so many wonderfull places to discover. I already spent more than three months exploring this state in several trips and I'm far of having seen all the spots of my list...
