Fortunately for us, we did not get the rain as we made our way down the mountain pass.

The weather actually cleared up and we saw some blue skies.

This is the area of Bear Paw Mountain.  On October 5, 1877, Nez Perce leader Chief Joseph, formally surrendered his forces to the US Army at Bear Paw Mountain.  This effectively ended the Nez Perce War of 1877.  The Nez Perce were promised by General Miles a safe return to the Wallowa Valley, however the general was overruled by Washington.  The survivors were not allowed to return to their homelands until the mid 1880's.

Eventually, we left the Shoshorne National Forest in Montana and entered the Bighorn National Forest in Wyoming.

Ralph spotted this deer on the side of the road so we stopped to photograph it at the end of the day.

What a beautiful drive this must have been. It's hard to choose as usual but I love the one with the mountains in the background and the fence in front. Nice work Marsha!

I love the colours of the fall foliage! The landscape is impressive. I really like how you've captured the cloud formations as well.
