A few last summer photos from two Jeep 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 Jeep 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 to get to the upper lake.

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