Great one. How about a place that does have cell service but shouldn't - Thorofare Pk, by some measures the most remote peak in the lower 48.
Yeah I bet. Anything that's got a good view anymore has cell service too. Those blank spots on the cell coverage map are getting smaller and smaller. On one hand, that's helpful - I did 2 months in the GYE this summer, planning not to be in town at all, so having cell coverage just for basic things like paying bills and getting backcountry permits was indispensable.haha I feel this one, have gotten cell signal from some amazing places in S Utah, mountain ranges in Nevada, etc. In some cases I legit couldn't imagine what tower my phone would be talking to. I don't really mind since I usually keep the damn thing in airplane mode so the battery will last when I use it for mapping, but it's a bit offensive at some level.
It's great grizzly country! Haven't seen a bear in that area; all my bear problems have been in the Borner Fork area. Nevertheless, that whole area is probably some of the best bear habitat to be found anywhere. Love that place.Ran into a Grizzly just on the other side of that saddle.
I've had the goal to get out there for the last 3 years and still haven't. Really need to change that next year.It's great grizzly country!

I hear ya. I've been skunked by the northern Thorofare/Butte Creek area twice now and I really want to go back and see the country between Open Cr and the North Fork Hwy.I've had the goal to get out there for the last 3 years and still haven't. Really need to change that next year.
Are there any good backpacking loops/routes in the area for a few days that you could recommend?
