This is taken somewhere on Highway 200 between Missoula and Great Falls. I thought for a minute or two I was somewhere in the outback of Australia. I wonder if the geologic features are similar. The grass is fairly green up here and especially so when you get to a river. It suddenly turns from light green to dark green. This must have been a welcome sight to those who were exploring these parts in the 19th century.
A good view of 12,000+ ft peaks and a fairly decent Highway 212 from Red Lodge MT to Cooke City MT, the northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Two to three hour drive. There are some nice videos of this drive on YouTube.
