winding down

After a fun and hot summer we can’t wait for things to cool off and the season to wind down. Here are a few pictures of the mostly water related activities of this summer…

a bit of history

The North Fork Hostel & Inn has a lot more than dorm rooms available. Ranging from an entire homestead ($85/night, up to 6 people), to a White Tipi complete with a double bed ($50/night), the North Folk Hostel strives to provide a rustic feel with a modern twist of electricity and lighting. And whatever accommodations you choose, make sure to find some time to explore the many adventures Montana has to offer.

Going-to-the-sun IV

Another great ride up the sun road that last weekend in May. I dragged Philipp from Germany along. He had fun getting out of the cleats when we stopped 🙂 No Bears, Bighorns or Marmots along the road during this ride but we saw a Mama Black Bear with her three cubs on our way back on the Camas Road.
