Berray Mountain Basin
Berray Mountain Basin is located in the Cabinet Mountains of Montana. In this photo, it lies silently cloaked in tattered wisps of evening fog on a late Autumn day. Snow has already fallen in the upper elevations on the distant mountainside and the larch trees stand as mysterious dark golden shapes in the mist.
The Cabinet Mountains are part of the Rocky Mountains, straddling northwest Montana and the Idaho panhandle, covering an area of 2,134 square miles (5,527 km²). They lie south of the Purcell Mountains, between the Kootenai River and Clark Fork River and Idaho’s Lake Pend Oreille and east of the Purcell Trench.
