Naomi Kimbell has always been fascinated by the view of the Rattlesnake Mountains, north of Missoula:

"As a child, I used to walk home backward so I could keep my eyes fixed on my section of the Rockies called the Rattlesnake.  I don’t know what it was I thought I wouldn’t see if I turned away but I knew I wanted the shape of the ridgelines in my eyes, though looking and seeing were never enough.  I wanted more than looking could give me and to be a part of what I saw.
