Strawberry Moon Rising

Strawberry Moon Rising over Sphinx Mountain in the Madison Range of Montana.

Sphinx Mountain is of interest to geologists as it exposes an unusual formation known as the Sphinx Conglomerate (Eocene) which overlays the Livingston Formation (Late Cretaceous). The conglomerate is found only on Sphinx Mountain and the adjacent peak, The Helmet. It was first identified by geologist A. C. Peale in during geological surveys of the region in the 1880s.
