Lake Como

Lake Como

June 29, 2004 | Bitterroot Valley

This is Lake Como, nestled in the foothills of the Bitterroot Mountains in western Montana. Lake Como was formed when the residents of the valley built a dam to ensure that the farmers had a supply of water to last through the summer.

This shot was actually taken in later June of a pretty wet year. I came back later in 2004 to see the lake. It had dropped nearly 50 fifty and was solid ice - quite a change from this warm summer day.

On this particular day, a great big thunderstorm rolled in a short time later.
