Didn't get to camp this weekend, but I did get to check out the lower roads in my backyard... lower roads had less snow than normal this year...High country still buried. We were alone... so no deep snow or mud stuff... just cheacking out to see what is open for camping for the next couple of weeks...

I love that area. So many awesome places to camp and just rest and recharge for a few days. Several lakes to kayak in, and even more to hike to if you are able to. The valley bottom of the Joe is cool, but the plateau is just stunning, especially if you get off of the paved road.

Pass over the top is still snowed in this year... they normally have it open by this weekend. I'm hoping they get it cleared up this week!

Now you went and made me miss Montana! I need to get back up there one of these days, hit areas I haven't been, revisit some favorite places and back to my dad's hometown again (it has been a VERY long time since I have been there).

We were alone... so no deep snow or mud stuff... just cheacking out to see what is open for camping for the next couple of weeks...

I'm over by Helena. May 31st, and 28 degrees this am... And Bozeman got hit with 18 inches of snow here like a week ago. We've been out twice so far at Lewis and Clark Caverns and Baker's Hole down by W. Yellowstone as they opened. I'll be hitting Red Cliff down by Big Sky here in a couple weeks (reservations). I noticed a lot less snow up high myself this year, not good for wildfires in Aug Sept. But this last snow did add to the snowpack and we need it.

You catch any of the snow? I'm at the edge of the Elkhorns and they got a nice foot or two on top and we need the snow pack. We just got snain (snow/rain/slush) below about 6,000 feet, heavy lost power for six hours one day...

AND, for you outlanders, winter will be back as early as early October like 2022 when we got over a foot in the first week of Oct. So, MT isn't as nice as the "Yellowstone" makes it look. I love the 41 below zeros I've experienced twice and 20 and 30's below often in late Jan early Feb mostly... So, we have a short time often to enjoy... So, come visit, bring your money and go home...

We got a little snow but mostly rain our of that last one down in Laurel... just outside of Park city, Bridger, Redlodge all in the 30 mile radius got 12 to 14 inches.... and the mountains got some up on top. Beartooth pass was about a week late opening this year. Overall snowpack is down in the mountians around me. My son is going to the Elkhorns this weekend... going over high ore road, through the tunnel and is goign to try and camp at tizer lake... stingray gladiator.

" My son is going to the Elkhorns this weekend... going over high ore road, through the tunnel and is goign to try and camp at tizer lake... stingray gladiator. " Chubby's in Clancy about 12 minutes north of Boulder has fantastic "well known" burgers and on Fridays prime rib to die for. It looks like a hole in the wall dive bar when you walk in has tables in back. Food is great. There is like zero good in Boulder... https://chubbysbarandgrill.com/entrees/

Nice... I want to do both. Still setting mine up (Freedom Edition) trying to figure if I'm going to take the Duelers off or run em another year and go with KO2's or I guess K03's now days... Maybe a 1.5 lift. I love em on my trucks.

Great, yet another place I need to add to my list of places to go see.
Sure looks nice, I love the mountains. Just feels like home to my soul.
