Sunflowers

After visiting Giant Springs last week we weren't quite ready to return indoors.
As the sun was slipping still lower we drove along to see one of the falls for which Great Falls, Montana was named.  When we are there I always find myself thinking of Lewis and Clark and marveling at the mission they undertook.
They did not have a nice car with air conditioning, or even a road, when they embarked on this route.  They didn't even know what they were going to find.

We found LOTS of bugs there.
I was really, really glad we could jump back in our car.

Anyway, I rather enjoyed taking pictures the short time we were there.
I hope you enjoy looking at them.  

The beauty of the falls is rather marred by the dam. 
I do like electricity, though, so I'm trying not to complain.



The Missouri River continues on to the East....

I love this photo but can you see all those bugs?

 There is a ladybug in this photo.  Can you see her?

And my favorite...I thought I was pretty artsy.
