What is it about autumn in Missoula that makes it seem to go by so quickly? Maybe it was that week of summer heat after the first flash of cold weather. Or maybe beautiful things are simply never long for this world.

We were lucky enough to visit Missoula Memorial Rose Garden before all the leaves had died. Did you miss out? No worries. You can see what the park had to offer in the gallery above.

Of course, the Rose Garden isn't the only place cast in hues of gold, like in the beautiful views of Bonner Milltown, below. Now as the rains set in, we're reminded that all of Montana is in high Fall, and even though that means Winter is right around the corner, let's enjoy it while we can.
