POTD: We Haven’t Lost Anyone Yet

This is an old railroad bridge across the Yellowstone River that has been converted to automobile traffic for access to the Terry Badlands in eastern Montana. They added a guardrail and put down some metal screen strips that hopefully line up with your tires, but basically you just drive across the railroad ties. Both the ties and the metal screen looked as if they’d not been seriously maintained in some time. At the local BLM office they noted that it was a bit rickety and intimidated people at times but said they’d not lost anyone on it yet. After two trips across in my van and walking out and back once, I am happy to report their claim still stands.

This is actually an installation art piece called Asterisms by Chris Fraser. He drilled literally thousands of holes in the roof of an old warehouse that is scheduled for demolition soon. (Yesterday’s photo was from here as well.) You can see the door that you enter the room from in the back left of the photo.

This (double) rainbow has been making regular appearances at our house in the evenings this summer, but no matter how many times we go down there and look, we can’t find a pot of gold.

We have porches all around our mountain house and this summer they’ve been providing a lot of good visual entertainment as weather systems move through. This view towards the southeast is of the Absaroka Mountains down towards Yellowstone National Park.
