    This was a day trip late last September west of Pony, MT in the Queens Hill/Windy Pass area. There are all sorts of artifacts from mining scattered throughout. We were in first gear, low range for some of this but that could have been avoided taking a slightly different route-but no fun in that.

    Mill remains with Hollow Top Mountain for a backdrop.

    1920's-1930's railroad tank cars presumably used for fuel storage and just pushed over the edge at the A&P Mine.

    More debris.

    The Queens Hill area burned about 5 years ago.

    A nice way to waste a really pleasant fall day.

    An early October logging road foray in the Storm Castle Creek-Swan Creek area south of Bozeman, MT in the northern Gallatin Range.

    We almost always see moose in this area.

    This was another October logging road cruise south of Bozeman in the Gallatin range-Little Bear/Wilson/Mica Creeks.

    Flathead Pass, Bridger Range. This area is only about 15 miles from our place. Another mid October run.

    Pass Creek area on the west side approach.
    [​IMG]

    We met up with other friends for this one. The Willys was put together from a pile of parts, including a stainless steel tub. It is mostly 2A, including Go Devil power. OK, very little power----

    Tobacco Roots again.

    Top of the pass.
    [​IMG]

    The road on the east side isn't any challenge except for a few mud holes.
    [​IMG]

    East side Bridger Range.
    [​IMG]

    On the Bridger Canyon side, we took a side excursion up the Fairy Lake Road to see how far we could get. I think the JK could have made it up to the lake with both ends locked but the Willys was struggling with the open diffs and those NDT's.
    [​IMG]

    On the west side of the pass (South Fork Flathead Creek), we disturbed an amours affair.

    Another perfectly wasted day-----

    It was a seduce the canine day yesterday and a friend, my wife and I did a little wheeling on the mild side of North Meadow Creek (the only side you can get to right now).

    Revenue Flats

    Ennis Lake, Lone and Fan Mountains

    Ward Peak
    [​IMG]

    N. Meadow/South Willow Creek divide and as far as we could get. A LOT of snow on the north aspect.

    Potosi Peak for a background
    [​IMG]

    Sureshot Lake. One may need some weight forward line for this.
    [​IMG]

    Stopped by the remains of the Revenue Mine on the way home.
    [​IMG]

    This was what the Revenue looked like in the mid 1960's. The operation was shut down by the War Production Board in 1942 and was still completely intact at least to the mid 50's.

    A few last summer photos from two trips up Dry Boulder Creek (out of Twin Bridges, MT), the first early August and the second a couple weeks later. The destination was Upper and Lower Boulder Lakes. There was a lot of smoke for the first trip and quite a bit less for the second.
    Southwest side of the Tobacco Root Mountains.

    It is a pretty easy trail into the lower lake but the stretch between the lakes is actually a bit of a challenge.

    Without lockers, my friend had to pull some rope.

    There is a lot of mining debris near the upper lake.
