Friday after work I loaded little man into the car with treats and movies and we headed two hours north to Lake Frances. This lake is actually a man-made reservoir where they store water to help with farming irrigation. It's a pretty good size body of water in Valier, Montana.
Valier is a quiet little farming town surrounded, just absolutely surrounded, by golden wheat fields. 
It's not mountainous, but rather hilly with just a silhouette of the Rocky Mountain front in the distance.  
But I'm telling you, the golden fields are just gorgeous.

Mr. Tuff Guy loved going for walks and saying hello to everyone
