It’s officially fall in Montana.
The huckleberry leaves have long been bright red, the larch are going golden, snow is dusting the high country and daylight is fading.
Trail runners are still getting into the hills, but as the elements begin to keep us closer to home Trail Shots will be slowing for the season. We’re not going away - just posting a little less often through winter.
Nonetheless, we’ll be watching to share your adventures. Here are some of the highlights from recent weeks:
At top, Forrest Boughner and Mike Foote went on a midweek run recently up to Bass Lake in the Bitterroot Mountains, where snow was collecting high on the rocky ridgelines.
