View from just below the M on Mount Sentinel in Missoula, October, 2007

I've spent a lot of great times in and around Missoula. I have many friends that make it their home, and we try to visit as much as possible. However, even after dozens of attempts, I had never been able to capture the right image of town. The location and weather had just never cooperated for me. Then finally, on a recent early October morning, I hiked Mount Sentinel in hopes that the sunrise would light up the fall colors that had begun to start to change all over the valley. As a few students from down at the University of Montana began to gather around the M and watch what I was doing, I finally got the image I had always wanted. A full 200 degree view from the south canyon to Lolo, all the way north to the Bitteroot River and the Rattlesnake.....
