    Cedar Lakes Loop in Montana's Cabinet Mountains Wilderness

    We started on this route on a Monday and so we were not expecting to see anyone.... That all changed at the trailhead when we saw a couple campers and a day hiker. That's just the way it has been this year. Jessie from the YouTube Channel HYOY-WU invited me on this trip through the Cabinet...

    Beartooths - Island Lake to the Beaten Path

    Attempted Summit of El Capitan - Montana, Bitterroot National Forrest

    In mid-August of this year, I made a trip to the Bitterroot National Forest in Montana to hike El Capitan. I set aside 8 days for this hike and planned to go slow and enjoy the scenery. I made it to Little Rock Creek Lake the first night and set up camp there. The next morning I set...

    Glacier National Park - August 2019

    With @Jeffrey Chandler going off to college and the uncertainty of his future, and the affect this transition will have on my life, we have been looking at this trip as possibly being the last arrow in the quiver. We wanted to make it a GRAND adventure. Our preliminary plans were so exhausting...

    Six days in the Bob Marshall Wilderness: The Chinese Wall and White River

    Six Days. 65+ miles. Two mountain passes. Two bears in camp. Lots of weather. Lots of solitude. Some pain. Some triumph. We beat the mosquitoes and the crowds at the cost of more snow. My brother Eric and I got to create new friendships with @Mountain Wanderer and @Joey along this...

    Yellowstone, Wildlife and Slough Creek May 23 to 26th

    My wife and I have made it an annual tradition to take an early trip to Yellowstone in May. This year we were planning to spend 2 or 3 nights up Slough Creek with @Joey if we could. However, with the weather forecast calling for a winter storm for the northern part of the park from the...

    Ski Mountaineering the Highland Mountains, MT

    This report is from a few weeks ago, but I am just now getting a chance to put all the photos together. A friend of mine had never been to the Highland Mountain lookout, so we've been talking about taking a trip up there for a while now. In the summer you can drive to within 1.5 miles of the...

    El Capitan, Bitterroot Mountains, MT 08.19.2018

    This is my first trip report here, hope you enjoy. Last week a friend sent me a message asking if I could get out for a hike this weekend. We had been trying to hook up for a while, but family and work obligations kept getting in the way. As luck would have it, we were both free Sunday, so we...

    The Chandler Family Get Together in Glacier 2018: Day 1

    August 4th 2018 Despite the Chandler Family Glacier Trip being a bi-annual affair for a few years now, its also been those few years that I have been working as a seasonal ranger during the summer. I was pretty psyched to finally get the chance to go back. So far it seems to be the one perk...

    Beartooths, Becker Lake

    For the third year in a row, we did a librarian hike. We're down to two of us, but we still went for our three day hike. This year Nancy wanted to get back to a spot where she had hiked with her son, Becker Lake, so off we went. The trailhead is at Island Lake, on the Beartooth Highway. We...

    The Bob

    Hopefully you guys don't mind me digging back in the archives a bit. I want to get some of my trips posted so you guys know me better. My son and I did a packrafting trip in the Bob Marshall Wilderness with a friend of ours back in 2014. Our route was a 115 mile loop with about 65 miles hiking...

    A Family Dayhike in the GYE

    August 5, 2017 The area immediately to the NW of West Yellowstone has been special to my family for a few generations now. This report is from one of their favorite spots up there. @Jessica and I were visiting my grandparents at their cabin near Cameron, and we went on this 8-mile hike with...

    Off the Beaten Path - Five Days in the Beartooth Range

    [Note - this post was originally written for my blog, in which I wax the purple at great length, boring everybody except my family. Thus the vast amount of background, which may be unnecessary for this audience. Also they're cell phone pictures and I'm no photographer. But figured I'd post a...

    Selway- Bitterroot Wilderness #2: Big Creek

    On this 3 day backpacking trip into the SBW, me and my girlfriend Erin, hiked up the infamous Big Creek to Big Lake on March 12- 15. A wonderous 18 mile round trip, this trail takes you up another one of the majestic and rugged Bitterroot Canyons of the Montana side of the wilderness. This...

    7 Day Glacier Trip 2015

    This is the Glacier trip I did last summer with Joey, Dave and Matt. Joey does such an amazing job editing and publishing these videos. They're not just highlights, but the entire adventure. While I realize most people won't spend an hour to watch this in its entirety, you have to acknowledge...

    A Very Late Beartooth Report

    Finally posting a very long overdue trip report from a 6-day hike in the Beartooths in August. I've put off making any sort of trip report for this one because it just wasn't a very enjoyable trip for me overall. The route itself was OK, save for one part which about did me in, and that part...

    Season's first snowshoe trip in the Elkhorns

    I took advantage of a recent snowstorm in the mountains and a nice day to do a little snowshoeing. It's a time of year where you can end up in mixed conditions, with stretches of snow followed by bare ground. The Elkhorns, however, which are just a few miles outside of Helena, tend to trap...

    Glenwood Lake - the Back Way

    The Elkhorn Mountains Southeast of Helena have long been my stomping grounds. They offer a wealth of outdoor opportunities that include hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, and photography . The highest point is Crow Peak at 9,414', above the town of Elkhorn, an old mining camp rich in history...
