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



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.
