The Kolden Report: Montana Back Roads, Part Twelve, December 15, 2013

Hello, kids!

Welcome new subscribers!  I hope you enjoy the "ride".  Feel free to share as you wish and artists.....feel free to paint, sculpt, draw or whatever if you find inspiration in my these reports. 

A resounding "thank you" goes out to you hearty souls that came out in 30 below weather to take in the bazaar last weekend!   I so enjoyed visiting with you and am already rolling around ideas for new pieces for the next show.  Congratulations to those of you who won in my annual "Give Back" drawings, as well. 

And now....back to the report.  When I last left you, we were in the Rockies Mountains, West of Augusta, Montana. 





Fall AND winter. 





What COLD looks like.





Survival of the fittest.





The power of photography.  (Makes you cold just looking at it, doesn't it?)





Although it is a FABULOUS place to visit,  I would not want to live in the mountains of Montana in wintertime:  LONG SHADOWS.





Striking shades.





Better sleep with one eye open!





Regulation food storage.  Up a tree, away from camp.






Who doesn't love the sound of a babbling brook?





Alien world?





The "bigger" picture.  LOVE this teeny, tiny tree. 





Nine mile Falls.





Bedazzled.





If any of you have any such door knobs, complete with the strike plate, please save them for me. 





The slope of things to come.





Long lake.





In case you want to fly in.




Forest forager.





You don't have to tell ME twice. 





REALLY?




Why DID the deer cross the road?





I'm with Ron.  May he rest in peace, among the horses.





Reflecting pond.  (But where are the moose?)





Fall fishin'.





Mother Nature's bonsai.

Stay tuned, much more to come!
