A Perfect Day
Little Utah, Montana
If you asked me how I would describe a perfect day, I’d likely be hard pressed to come up with a definition. It’s one of those “I’ll know it when I see it” kind of things. And many different kinds of days could qualify as such for various disparate reasons. However, the day I took this photo was in fact one of those perfect days. Perfect weather after days of dreary, raining, snowy weather in Bozeman. Pure blue skies with puffy white clouds floating by. On top of that I was driving in the Montana back county and did not see another vehicle all day. And then the canyon I was headed to turned out to be a small version of a classic southwest canyon, only it was in Montana and I did not have to drive nearly as far as Utah to experience it. The canyon has junipers and little sand dunes the color of Utah sandstone with the accompanying rock hoodoos all around. To top it off I hiked the canyon and had fun photographing. Returning to the van I camped there overnight and again saw no one all night or the day until I drove out to the highway.
Today in Bozeman it’s snowing, again! But that’s o.k. too because it’s perfectly good weather to stave off the summer fire season which always seems to be excessive and long anymore.
