An iconic image in Montana: trains moving across the wide open landscape.
Rural barnyards with windmills.
A Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel (Spermaphilus lateralis) in Glacier National Park - not a chipmunk as the stripes might suggest. Note that this little mammal has no facial stripes.
Old churches and cemetarys out in the middle of nowhere are evidence of long ago thriving communities.
Old silo under a leaden Montana sky. These are everywhere and always near railroad tracks.
Wide open prairie land along the northern tier of the state and mountains and buttes all along the southern route - definitely a place to visit. Have a plan and give yourself time.
