In early May, the grass is just greening up in Central Montana. The tracks pass through vast agricultural areas and a few abandoned towns. We were able to view 5 different mountain ranges from the train as we traveled along the tracks to Denton. Above - the Big Snowy Mountains are off in the distance. Below, the Judith Mountains - closer and snowless.
The train passes over three huge trestles along the way. These are amazing works of engineering and construction! Above, the view down to the Judith River, with the trestle shadow and a bit of the Judith mountains off in the distance.
