Where Was I?

I have been on the road the past week, so I thought that I would throw in my first-ever puzzler. Be the first commenter to tell me in what region this photo was taken, and I will send you some little outdoor trinket or other. Precision counts. Don't just say, "Montana," for example. (Family members and people whom I visited on this trip are not eligible.)

The Answer (Oct. 14):  The photo was taken along the Niobrara River's "national scenic river" corridor east of Valentine, Nebraska. I know that I have one reader in Nebraska who should have gotten it. Oh well.

Heck, I'll play--I'd guess Little Bighorn, but there's prolly too many trees. :S

Not a bad guess, but no.

Hint: the conifers in the distance are mostly ponderosa pine.

It looks like the area near Dillon where I went to geology field camp.

Sorry, it is at a considerably lower altitude.
