From Missoula, Mt., take highway 93 south to Stevensville. Turn left onto Eastside highway and travel about six miles. This highway splits the Bitterroot valley down the middle.
The weather man called for a very cold night with clear skies the next morning. I knew this was a likely mix for fog and frost to freeze to vegitation. I got up early and was rewarded with several keepers as the sun cleared the mountains and spilled into the valley.
