Winter in the Bitterroot

Bitterroot River in late December - by Merle Loman
I am sharing photos of the Bitterroot valley, river and mountains in December. View the slide show or click on it to view the web album.

We had rain, then snow, then FREEZING COLD, then rain, more snow...a very unusual early winter. There is a lot of moisture, much beauty, and I need to mention the avalanche danger again. If you aren't fishing in this cold, you might be hiking or skiing. Be safe. Visit the website Avalanche Information for West Central Montana for a current avalanche danger report.
