Photo of the Week: October 1, 2012

Nature paints an image of wildfire in bands of color striping the mountainside south of Red Lodge, Montana.  This capture came at the end of a shoulder season hike in the Glacier Lake area on a beautiful October day in 2011.  That year’s extended Indian summer precluded an unseasonably mild winter in the Beartooth Mountains, and the drought effects are still being felt in the form of real wildfires that have scattered the region as of this writing one autumn later.
