August 9, 2010
Monday and I have the morning off from gallery duty and in this busy time that is a treat so by 5:30 in the morning I am at Kathys Koffee where Frank who is reading a book completely at peace with the world is surprised to find anyone up much less heading into the back country. With a hot cup of coffee I drive down the hiway east of Dubois and turn off on the East Fork road and again about 8 miles further on I decide to check out the lower reaches of the Wiggins Fork where I drive a ways then park the truck and walk to the edge of the steep decline peering over the edge into the Wiggins Fork river itself some 40 feet below. There is a cow Moose just below me browsing along on willows and it is still pretty dark for photos so I back off and return to the truck to finish off my coffee and let the world brighten up. The sun finally makes its way into out darkened world and first sets the clouds on fire befor doing the same to the land. First the mountains then lower it comes.
