This week was about Montana and my first-timer impressions. Montana is about tawny folded hills, soaring rough-hewn mountains, remote gravel roads, pastured horses, log cabins and clear energetic streams hurrying out of the hills onto honey-grass flats. It is also about Glacier National Park and the Going to the Sun Road – the harrowing narrow rock-cut path that traverses the park, crossing the Continental Divide in the process. I did the driving on the way up, uncomfortably hugging the inside, knuckles white. The road down from the Divide to the other side of the park was closed for the season, so we came back down the way we had gone up, and right at sunset. I made this image as we paused at the top, delaying the return trek as long as possible.
