The trail became much more forested as we dropped down to a lower elevation on Day 3 of our trip through the Beartooth Wilderness.
We passed by Big Park Lake.
The smoke was really moving in by this point, and the views were getting pretty hazy.

The trail down from Impasse Falls follows along the edge of this rock wall.
The trail is rocky at times and precarious.
As we dropped lower, we were able to see more of the waterfall, which is about 100 feet. I know it is much bigger than this earlier in the season.
This picture (above) doesn't really show it, but the steel and wooden "dam" on the trail is breaking apart and may someday give way. It seems to be holding for now.
I get sort of disoriented by heights like this and I felt I had to brace myself against the wall to take this picture of the entire falls (below). I guess I also needed to get as far back as possible to get the whole thing in the frame.

At Impasse Falls, East Rosebud Creek tumbles down into Duggan Lake below.
There was a lot of smoke in the air, making everything look hazy.
Here is the creek, starting over the falls.
Looking down on Duggan Lake from the top of the waterfall.

I've had my work sell on that first day - at $750. Shocking - I know, but it has happened a couple of times. I was slow getting my piece sent in this year, so I ended up on the very last page . . . . the very end of the auction. I do think placement has an impact, but we shall see!
All donated pieces are 12" square. This piece is a gelatin plate print done with beets from the Farmer's Market.
Here is a link to the page containing my piece in the SAQA Online Benefit Auction.
