Little Buckhorn (10/2/14)
Up Little Buckhorn to the Knott County Horse Trail / ATV Park. Awesome drive.
Mueller Park Trail
Got out for a nice short hike before fall closes in. Next time I go up there, it will be brightly covered leaves.
I heard some grunting on the side of the trail, like some wild animal giving birth. I saw the outline of a man sitting down. I let him be, whatever he was doing.
Skiing Trapper Peak
The calendar says it's summer, but the spring skiing in western Montana is as good as it gets right now, with 5 feet of snow at 8000 feet.
Headed up Trapper peak today, 2 miles of hiking until there was consistent snow coverage, and after that it was firm enough that i ended up walking all the way to the summit in running shoes, never put my skins on. Had a nice 1000 foot run off the summit down the northeast bowl, then booted back up to the summit ridge for a long cruise back to the car.
Toddler Hike - Tilden
A guided hike for families and toddlers. Saw herons, a lizard, turtles, and more.
