First time back country mission, May 2016

Had the opportunity to tag along with a fine collection of folks on a back country adventure. Drove from Bozeman into the Tobacco Roots Mountains, driving as far up the road as we could before snow stopped the progress, then snow shoed/tele’d up to Boulder Lakes. 71 more words
