SEASONS

This spot is located near the high point of the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway, at a altitude of about 8000ft. In the late afternoon, this location provides a spectacular view of the Clark's Fork of the Yellowstone River. You get an entirely different view if you turn left from the NE direction this shot was taken at.

It is possible to get this spot in both summer and winter. It might produce some intriguing results if you care to give it a try.
