Today we began heading south, trying to avoid the worst of the cold and wet that is headed into this part of the country. It was an interesting drive. While in south central Montana, the last farm we observed was the sugar beet harvest.
Today, as we moved into Idaho, we discovered they are in the midst of the potato harvest.
Not all the views were this clear. We were aware that there are forest fires burning in and near Yellowstone National Park. Were we ever glad we aren't staying there. This was the view out our windshield as we passed near West Yellowstone.
Along the way we saw some Sandhill Cranes feasting in a wheat field. Click on the photo to see them better.
We drove through some beautiful farm country.
We also saw a little touch of fall color that is really beautiful.
