Huckleberry makes a show in this fall view of an area impacted either by prescribed or wild fire on the western slopes of Aeneas Mountain. It is named for Eaneas Paul Big Knife, a Kootenai chief in the late 1800’s.
Painted on location. We were the last hikers to leave the parking area that evening.
