So I end up with a weekend open with Mrs Shady heading to Vegas with her friends. I get to do anything. So I pack up the Strom. A few ideas bounce by, and I decide to head east Skalkaho creek running strong As are the falls, pictured here behind the dork I always like this road On over to P-Burgh, with interesting yard decorations Onward to Helena And across the water into the mountains This place had like 3 buildings Been a long day, found me a camp spot and set 'er up. Now, just sit there The burbling stream and wind in the trees sang me into deep sleep. 6 AM I was up cooking oatmeal, which I enjoyed over hot coffee and had the company of a deer watching me from across the creek. Kickstands up at 9 and rolling south then east again Canyon Ferry reservoir A little flower memorial or something at the top of the hill Looking back at the south end of the reservoir. Head East again Into White Sulphur Springs Haunted house Fort Logan Cool part here. Took this road that turns to dirt, and stays dirt, for 65 miles. Not one single intersection with another road besides the occasional ranch driveway. It was just spectacular. Helped the ranchers out a bit with their ground squirrel problems Back down to the big prairies now Fooled around Great Falls for a bit, rode out to Belt, then looking for a non-windy camp area, iffy at best in that area, was fruitless so I kept heading towards home, eventually all the way. Went 660 miles in 2 days, and couldn't complain about any of it really. There are big sections of Montana to explore that quietly hide on your map every day.
