Yesterday, I spent a good part of the day heading north from Helena into the Missouri River valley. The river here is only about 70 miles from its origin in Three Forks, flowing north before it turns east just before Great Falls.

I started out at 10:30 a.m. and returned at 10.30 p.m. with so many photographs that it is going to take days to go through them. However, this shot was spectacular. Taken from Ulm Pishkun State Park where I had ended up after a very slow journey through the mountains, it shows a giant storm cloud directly north of me.

Against the flat plain, the sight was breathtaking.
