I've been getting pretty ancy lately to get up above the valley to shoot some photos of Missoula since all the autumn colors are goin' off. I finally got the chance tonight, and can't believe how incredible it is right now. I am so glad I got some photos since after living here for 35 years, I know all too well that the leaves will be on the streets in a few days and then they'll be covered in snow for months. Perhaps displays like this one are Mother Nature's way of easing us into the grey season...or maybe it's a cruel joke. Either way, Missoula kicks ass right now.
