Over the last 12 months, the Flathead Beacon’s photographers — Greg Lindstrom and Justin Franz — filed more than 1,700 images; a minuscule selection of the many thousands of frames they took crisscrossing Northwest Montana every week. Those thousands of frames capture our community’s many memorable moments, big and small, from 2018. 

Presidential visits. Olympic homecomings. Out-of-control wildfires. Here’s a look at 2018 through the lens of the Beacon’s photographers.
