Crazy Arch

visible from the plains between billings and bozeman are the crazy mountains of montana. this scene, with the mountains visible beyond the arch, was photographed around big timber, montana just off the i-90 heading westward.

though there is not a definite origin to the name, the most popular story goes that a woman travelling across the plains by wagon went insane. she left her party and was later found near those mountains. hence, the mountains were originally named crazy woman mountains. the name was eventually shortened to crazy mountains.

this photograph can be found in the following gallery: doors, windows & arches
