A MONTANA ADVENTURE: VALIER

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.
