Sept. 1, 2010
After a good quarter of a mile of extreme exposure the road is no wider but the drop off is way less severe giving one somewhat a sense of safety. The view looks out across beautiful mountain meadows and spectacular views to the south such as this of Lava Mountain, an extinct volcano that stradles the continental divide which we are also doing at this point.


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    Great photos of the area. I was overwhelmed with the majesty of the landscape.

    I thought the continental divide must have been some where close by. As my friend and I drove towards Dubois, we noted the waters flowing down the mountain and a damn at the bottom. Boysen dam maybe? Couldnt quite figure how that worked unless there was some odd geophysical reason.

    BTW, your paintings are just wonderful.

  2. Wow! nice it not wonderful how as painters we can move the landscape to suit our needs and add a few components to make a better end they say we have the artistic license to do so....I find as a photographer it is much more of a challenge to find the perfect composition with what nature provides us....sometimes it works great and others no matter what angle you approach it just dosen't look right.....Are you planning on painting this????
