Fall Colors on Montana's Hi-Line...
Author: mtnwestrail

If I had posted earlier, I could have used some locations which were already shown. First up is a westbound manifest slowing for a flashing yellow at East Java, MT. You have to time it just right to get the light to show. ;-]

Two BN green SD40-2s lead a westbound stack train across the fill east of Bison, MT.

The trees are just starting to turn at this familiar location near Marias, MT, but the snow is a nice touch. Special thanks to Todd Busse for the perspective.

Deep valleys and tall peaks dwarf this westbound stack train in the low light of early October.

Great stuff Paul.

Wish I could've joined you this year up in MT, but alas, my employer was doing his best to make sure my bills were paid...

We missed you, Rick. You would have liked how well the digital shows worked (thanks to FBE), but we'll do that again next year too.

Thanks for the comments, gentlemen.

I found one more I want to add. Same location as the last photo, just a few days before with a little more sun where we can really see the colors. You might recognize this from a shot last week.... ;-]
