We’re camped near Thompson Falls, MT for the Labor Day weekend.
It’s beautiful country — mountains, rivers, and that big sky — but just incredibly dry (see our previous post Wildfires).
CLARK FORK RIVER BOAT RIDE
We took a boat ride up the Clark Fork River from Thompson Falls to Trout Creek and got a bird’s eye view of the dry country . . .
FIRE ON THE RIVER
We spotted at least two large fires in the mountains as we travelled up river. On our return trip back to Thompson Falls, we saw a large helicopter getting water from the river and flying it to a nearby fire.
