After leaving Glacier, I headed south. The weather soon began to clear.
Looking west from along the roadside.
From the same vantage point.
The sun peeking through the clouds.
Driving along, I saw this bridge that appeared to be abandoned. I've always been fascinated with structures like this, wondering why they were abandoned. As I've gotten older, I've come to understand this more, but I still see them as windows to a time past and stories forgotten.
Clouds forming as the air rises over the mountain.
Looking back the way I came.
As I approached Butte, I saw this statue. Named Our Lady of the Rockies, it is a statue of the Virgin Mary and was erected on the Continental Divide by the people of Butte. At 90 feet tall, it is the second tallest statue in the States second only to the Statue of Liberty. It is dedicated to women everywhere, in particular mothers.
I have had an interest in photography since the time I was a young boy going to take photos with my father. In high school I purchased a Nikon FE2 and grew to love it. Today I still take pictures, though not as often as I used to. I'd rather get one decent shot than shoot dozens of pictures hoping for a good one. If you see anything that interests you, let me know. Most of my pictures are available.
