OUR DATE CONTINUED

On our way home from Reed Point (yesterday’s post) we stopped in Big Timber and a couple of places along the highway to take some photos of the beautiful Crazy Mountains and surrounding farm land.

The Interstate follows the rail road tracks along this stretch, so when we got out in Big Timber we had to cross them to get the view I wanted (see above).  Andy got out and joined me.  Next thing I knew, along came a train:Ellie-128

After it was gone I saw Andy fussing around on the tracks.  Then he showed me this:

The clouds that day were fairly dramatic making big shadows across the land.Ellie-159
