There is no better way
To spend an autumn day
Than to take a ride with friends
Up into the Gravelly Range
We traveled along the Madison
Overlooking the Palisades
And enjoyed the river view
And the hint of what’s to come
Every mile closer to
Antelope Basin, our destination,
The scenery became more and more
At the 7,000 foot level
The autumn colors amaze
The aspen are changing color
From green to gold to orange
Golden grasses and blue sky
Accented the purple mountains
And created a wonderland
For this appreciative photographer
We went in and out of twelve
Or more gates to keep cattle in
They stood at the road’s edge
Unperturbed by our noisy ATVs
When you sing of purple mountain majesty
And you wonder what that might look like,
Just come to Montana and you will
Wonder no more… you’ll just be in awe!
We stopped by Hidden Lake
To rest and have our lunch
The lake is soooo beautiful
And it really is hidden down there
Chuck and Caroline relaxed with Bob
After enjoying a picnic lunch
Penny & Rex were with us
And TazE, too, of course!
Isn’t that blue sky spectacular?
And the colors of the trees glorious?
Don’t you wish you could be
In an ATV traveling with us?
‘Tis time to return to our pickups
Load up the four-wheelers
Return down to our Madison Valley
And look forward to the next trip.
Wish you could join us!
I’ll share a couple more pics tomorrow.
Have a good night.
Thanks for traveling with me vicariously!
