Fire, Water, and Eagles

We’re camped near Thompson Falls, MT for the Labor Day weekend.

Great View from Our Front Window

Our Campground’s “Mining Town”

It’s beautiful country — mountains, rivers, and that big sky — but just incredibly dry (see our previous post Wildfires).

This is as bad as it gets

 

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

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.
