On a recent trip to Montana, we visited the ghost town of Bannack. Without crowds from the recent Bannack Days, it was perfect for photographing the fascinating buildings on a beautiful day. Stay tuned for a post with the inner rooms, which were spectacular!.

Fall is beginning to creep into the mountains, and this week I took advantage of a clinic retreat in Big Cottonwood Canyon to take my first fall hike. Early in the morning, a young buck curiously checked me out while eating his breakfast, and at the lake, I took in the first yellow of the aspens and the ducks swimming in their reflection.
Over a busy weekend, we were glad for a solitary canyon hike with a backside approach in Capitol Reef. It was an adventure driving out to the wash, and the adventure continued as a storm blew up. It seemed as though the storm would miss us, but right after we made it to the summit ridge, a few drops came down. With the sound of thunder in the distance, we rushed back down the canyon, and by the time we made it back to the wash, it was beautifully sunny again. As we drove back through the main road, we stopped at some of the classic Capitol Reef sites, with some amazing petroglyphs.
