Missouri Breaks At Sunset   Leave a comment

The 149-mile Upper Missouri National Wild and Scenic River flows through the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument in Montana. The land and the rugged, surrounding uplands (commonly call the Missouri Breaks) are defined in part by their history. The entire region was the homeland and lifeblood of American Indians. The river served as the pathway for Lewis and Clark, then the waterway for steamboats and a drawing card for fur trappers and traders. Later, the river and the Missouri Breaks were sanctuaries for desperados trying to stay a step ahead of the law. The land was also a source of hope and inspiration for several generations of homesteaders. Today the public lands in the monument make a significant contribution to the local lifestyle and the regional economy. Within the monument you can float the river, fish, hike, hunt, drive for pleasure, find a little solitude, enjoy a sense of exploration or simply marvel at the variety of resources around you.

This photo by Bob Wicks (mypubliclands.tumblr.com) from the Upper Missouri Rivers Breaks National Monument in Montana is an example of the use of use of framing to add a sense of intrigue to the image by blocking part of the view – Viewers will look at the person in the “Hole in the Rock” and wonder what that individual is seeing. To access the Hole in the Rock and other amazing photogenic rock formations, one must take a multi-day float trip down the Upper Missouri Wild and Scenic River. You will be following the same route (albeit going downstream) that Lewis and Clark came up on their voyage of discovery. The Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument hold a spectacular array of plant life, wildlife, unique geological features, endless recreational opportunities and significant historical and cultural values.
