Canyon Lake

16X20 oil, Canyon Lake is located in the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness
Back in the Late 70's I was hunting elk with some friends in the upper selway river drainage west of Darby, Montana.When I came upon canyon lake, elk hunting I photographed the lake in the midday haze caused by a nearby forest fire on Vance mountain. I returned to this exact location in 2008 and found that the four trees on the left were standing skeletons, and young trees were beginning their upright duty of "watchmen of the lake" still as pristine as that day in September of 1979
