The month of June usually brings unsettled weather to the state. Aside from aggravating one's arthritis, the elements often produce a sunset show. The scene is similar to one we recorded several years ago almost to the day. Taken from the back yard here.

we'd recommend is Blodgett Overlook in the Bitterroot Range of Western Montana, just west of Hamilton. The trail begins at the Canyon Creek Campground and covers 1.4 miles of easy going and gentle terrain. Not too strenuous for most anyone from age 8 to 80 or beyond.
Once there, one gains a sense of how important glacial action was to this range of mountains. Rock climbers scale its slabs and there are huge Ponderosas along the way. The view into Idaho is spectacular and eastward, one is treated to the valley floor.
