Gateways

Sacagawea and Saddle Peaks - Billings

The thinly snow-covered Sacagawea and Saddle Peaks gracefully arch around the eastern boundary of the valley, forming a visual gateway to the Gallatin Mountain Range and Yellowstone to the south. Bozeman, Montana lies at the end of their sweeping arch, barely visible as it recesses into the relatively smooth lowland terrain. On this October afternoon, there is a hidden reassurance in this scene…beyond the perpetually snowy mountaintops, the snow line is not yet apparent and with a little luck, we’ll continue to see the colored contours of bare earth for a few more weeks.
