Tough to capture in a photo

  2. Dennis in So Cal says:

    Beautiful Matt, but for your sake I hope they don’t lie on the road ahead.

  3. Jeff says:

  5. Angie from Des Moines,Iowa says:

    Makes me get all verklempt just looking at it :)


  6. Trish in Montana says:

    Wish you could take a detour, Matt, and hike Glacier National Park. We just did Grinnell Glacier hike (11 miles) and I thought I had died and gone to heaven! Spectacular doesn’t even say it well enough. Maybe you could plan a trip there sometime in the future.

    My daily devotion brought your journey to mind: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old pathe, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls (Jeremiah 6:16).

    May you find peace and meaning while you wander!

      We did “going to the sun” road through Glacier a few days ago on our Motorcycle. Wish we had some more time to do some hiking. That’s the way to really see it. Ginnell Glacier is where Jack Hanna pepper-sprayed a griz the other day! The Mission Mts. shown in Matt’s photo here ARE spectacular, but they pale in comparison to Glacier Park Mountains!

    • Barb V from Michigan says:

      Great verse, and so appropriate for Matt. Thanks for sharing, Trish!

  7. Julie in Cincinnati says:

    Snow-capped mountains are so pretty! Be safe and enjoy the scenery Matt.

  8. Candice in Alabama says:

    Beautiful Matt – just beautiful.

  9. From the vines to the mountains and the little tiny house in between. Just spectacular. The building in the distance there is dwarfed up against the majesty of the mountains. Just awesomer.

  10. Michelle says:

    And yes, they really do turn purple in the right light. It kind of makes you gasp, and then the song gets stuck in your head…


  11. Gigi says:

    Big blue sky, majestic purple mountains, green trees and grass, and tumbling white wildflowers make one great pic.

  12. Scott says:

    Some lucky person is living in that house with that view every day!!! Incredible! Just incredible!!!

  14. The Mission Mountains?? I know there are other Montanans on this, Is that which range they are? Or is he too far west?

    • Megan in Great Falls MT says:

      They look like the Missions to me as well. I’m not sure exactly where Matt is, I haven’t looked at his map lately, but the Missions were my first thought.

      • Megan in Great Falls MT says:

        Just looked at the map, appears this was taken just east of St. Ignatius….they would be the Missions. We’re right!

    • Lori says:

      I believe the mountains just East of St. Ignatius are called the Mission Mts. (named for the historic mission in St. I). I’m in N. Idaho, not Montana, but have spent a lot of time in beautiful big sky country.

  15. Marilyn (Iowa) says:

    Awesome! Totally AWESOME, one of God’s creation! Don’t you love it and we are seeing it through Matt!

  16. Yeah Craig from NC…There is snow all through summer on the mountain tops (Ice Glaciers) anyways i heard there was a small forest fire in the bob marshaL Forest luckely matt never ran across it, I just read it was in paper yesturday..Matts gonna walk next to the Flat Head Lake next its a huge lake…goodluck MAtt

    • Lori says:

      If I’m not mistaken, Matt’s planned route takes him West on Hwy 200 towards Paradise, Plains & Thomspon Falls, along the Flathead & Clark Fork Rivers, not Flathead Lake. Flathead Lake IS INDEED stunningly beautiful & huge, but it’s a few miles farther North. The rivers will provide beautiful scenery & I’ll be Matt posts pics of the during the next few days.

    bet not “be” & them not “the”…. duh….
