On the Yaak River in Early Spring

“Yahk” is a First Nations Kootenai word which means either “arrow” or “bow” and refers either to the Yaak River or the Kootenay River. The southward curve of the Kootenay River as it flows from Canada into the United States then back into Canada, resembles a bent “bow”, with the Yaak River possibly being the “arrow”. This scene is upriver from Yaak, Montana during mid-winter with the sun low in the sky and golden reflections rippling across the surface of this fast-moving river.
