David and I took a leisurely drive into the heart of the Flathead Valley.
Farms and ranches dotted the landscape, under a turbulent sky.
Curious horses in fuzzy winter coats graciously posed for pictures,
before we stopped at Fairview Cemetery, where it was incredibly cold.
A field of diverse angels was revealed. A girlish one prayed to the heavens.
A sleeping cherubim pitted by time, lay peacefully.
A trumpeting Gabriel shone in the light.
While yet another symbolized the renewal of life.
Observe carefully when wandering about a cemetery. You will find life,
and tokens from the dead.
On the road again, we spotted wildlife. We stopped and began hunting with our cameras.
A herd of 30 magnificent elk grazed in a grassy field.
We snapped shot after shot until they ran into the woods.
It was a day of unexpected treasures discovered in our own backyard.
