Heart Mt.

I was driving south from Cody; the time was about 8:00 p.m. and the sun was giving the entire landscape a beautiful aspen glow. I looked back at Heart Mountain, and I decided it was worth the stop on the side of the road to take a picture with my iPhone. 

You might remember reading just a few words about the Japanese Camp created during WW II, located at the base of Heart Mt. which I blogged about in May.  They must have felt they were taken to the most remote area they could imagine!


  1. I love the depth of field in this photo. Nice photo!

  2. Beautiful photo. Your IPhone did an excellent job with the colors!

    I can't imagine how scared the people were to show up at the camp. It looks to be very remote.

  3. I don't think we can imagine how the Japanese people felt being taken to a place in the middle of nowhere and interned. It was a cruel thing for these people. Looking at the landscape now, it seems remote... but beautiful.

  4. What a lovely shot. Im sure the Japanese were feeling isolated ….I'm glad however they were in such a pretty place.

  5. Great post.
    A time and place in history we should never forget!
