Remarks & Notes 
I think all of us at some point ask ourselves if what we are doing is worth it. In my case, driving for hours in awful road conditions for a long hood forward geep? After Montana was slammed with snow, I begrudgingly made a near 3 hour trip (just under double the time) to see what I could find. The goal of course was the Harrison Branch. Scarcely shot outside of the two Danneman brothers, I don't think I've ever seen something from this line in the snow. There's two reasons for that. 1. This line is serviced once a week, if that. 2. Snow doesn't stick long in the eastern and middle parts of the state, with strong winds usually clearing it out fairly quickly. I rolled up to this spot, looked up at the cloudless sky behind me and realized, I did it. This would be the winner, the best shot, the reason I nearly spun out on I90 countless times. Although I would've preferred short nose leading, I came to like how the famed Lionhead logo sticks out at you, and long hood forward screams branchline railroading to me. I'll breakdown this line some other time with another photo, but sometimes you just have to enjoy when a shot comes together.
