Chief Mountain, that is.
The theme “Chief Mountain at dusk” became my self-assignment for the summer of 2013 while working as a Conservation Intern for the Nature Conservancy of Canada in the Waterton Park Front. The other interns and I were blessed to live in a house with a view of the Chief from the deck. All of the photos in this collection were taken from the patio doors onto the deck or in close proximity to the house.
The point is to showcase the changing evening sky above an iconic landmark. Chief Mountain is actually in northern Montana and is sacred to the Blackfoot-speaking people. It is the last (first?) of a range of mountains, so the story says that the First Nations called it “Chief” because it appears to be leading the other mountains out onto the prairies.
I haven’t included a photo from every evening–if the sky was completely blank with clouds or blue sky, the photo was usually not very interesting!
And with that, my blog is un-abandoned!
