This old tractor is a McCormick-Deering 10/20, said to be one of the most popular tractors of its time. More than 215,000 were produced and sold during its 1929-1939 run. It weighed just a few bolts over 5,000 pounds, and it could pull almost 3,000 pounds in low gear. It featured a 4-cylinder engine that produced 10.9 drawbar and 20.46 belt horsepower. That hole in the front is where the hand crank used to be. This rusty model had steel wheels, but rubber tires became a popular option in the mid-1930's.
A pictograph panel of seven shield-bearing warriors stands guard over the rising Milky Way. The various Native American rock art drawings in this central Montana location date from 1,000 B.C. to 1850 A.D., with this panel dating between 1400 and 1700 A.D. Large shields such as these pre-date the arrival of horses to Montana, when all of the horse-owning tribes switched to smaller shields that were more manageable at a full gallop.
It was the Harvest Moon upon rising at sunset. But at sunrise, it was a 99% moon that gracefully exited the stage beyond Mount Reynolds, in Glacier National Park.
