The Missouri River, south of Ft. Benton, MT

Beautiful scenery, Big Sky Country, and a still-young river – what more could you ask for?  Taken Aug 4, 2016.  (For a shot in the other direction at the same place, see River2.)

Missouri River (Amelia Earhart Memorial) Bridge 

Atchison, Kansas

I shared this during my trip, but not since. I recently discovered this will be the photo on the back cover of The Book! Taken on the evening of August 30 after the good Atchison folks recreated their award-winning display to allow me to take photos!

Gen George Custer’s Home

Still standing, authentically restored, at Fort Abraham Lincoln outside of Bismarck, North Dakota.  It was from here that Custer set out on his final ill-fated mission into Indian country to the west.  Taken August 12, 2016.  For another shot from the opposite side (it’s longer than it looks), see Custer2.

The Jefferson River, near Three Forks, Montana

Despite having a different name, this is actually part of the headwaters of the Missouri River.  This shot is taken roughly 20 miles upriver from Three Forks, where this branch and two other tributaries come together to form the official start of the Missouri River.  Taken on July 31, 2016.  For another view of this river – even further upstream – see Jefferson2.

Sunset on Lake Taneycomo

Taken Feb 11, 2017.  There were several good views as the sun set, but I chose this one, as I love the blue/pink contrast on the Lake.  On the other hand, there are two others where the colors in the sky are more dramatic.   Visit Sunset2 to see them. (Feel free to let me know your favorite.)
