Upper Big Hole River

The Big Hole River in Montana has three distinct personalities. In its upper reaches, it runs through very gently sloping country and is home to the last remaining river-dwelling population of arctic grayling. A lot of cooperation from ranchers is required to keep the water as pure as required by the grayling. This scene caught my eye years ago, and I was finally able to manage an inviting image from the original capture.
