Posting a few quick shots here of autumn activities in the Missoula area. Above was tonight’s hike to above Windsock on Sentinel.Photograph of turning Aspens and a lamp post.Pattee Canyon is setting up for some type of a prescribed burn (a “test”) I reckon (below). Thinning out the backside of Sentinel. Should be interesting and perhaps a waste of a resource? I lost count of all of the wood piles. Riding in Rattlesnake with Seth, David and Whit recently (above).The Whitetails have been active in our yard lately as seen in the two photographs taken below. Big game (rifle) opens this weekend statewide. We’ve still not yet been waterfowling . Temps have been unseasonably warm. Should be doing more fishing. The state high school soccer finals begin this week.Seth and David peddling along the Rattlesnake Corridor.Pattee Canyon fall colors below.Two deer roughhousing above a worn Aspen’s base and the archery target area.Colors among neighbors landscaping and stop signs.Contrasting colors among landscaping. Life clings to the stands though renewal will win the day.At the Beacon (below) above town during a quick mountain bike outing. Saw a few Mule Deer and Blue Grouse, a party of three distance runners as well.A final shot of turning Aspens in the backyard. Nature at her finest.
