Red Meadow Road

Came across this guy on my ride down red meadow road. I was curious how far you can get and I turned around a little past the 8 Mile marker where the snow started to cover the whole width of the road. One probably could get as far as the bridge or even further pushing through some snow… To be tried again!

North Fork Park Update

Glacier National Park swung two gates open yesterday morning; – One will get you full access to everything Bowman. – the other will get you as far south as Logging Creek along the Inside NF Road.

The last two…

Going to the sun road

It’s just under 100 klicks from the Camas Bridge to Logan Creek round trip. That’s where the Hiker/ Biker closure was. The plows have made it about a mile plus past the loop. A good sunburn was the reward of this first day of May and my first daffodil flowered out! There were some good slides along the road, I’m excited to go further up now.

Spring Floating

The river is inviting again, there was a prescribed burn on Big Prairie, oh, and some northern lights last night… Life is good.
