    Crossed in at Monida Pass 16 April and out at MM 249 on I-94 30 September. In between, saw lots of neat stuff, caught a few fish and kept my mother-in-law relatively happy. Roughly in chronological order

    the quarry - wary, secretive, elusive (if not for a decent set of brakes it would have been a speed-bump)

    I love fishing in Montana. Just spent about 9 days there a couple weeks ago. Looking forward to going back next year.

    Deep Thought: Okay. The answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything is...
    Deep Thought: 42. No wait. I'm going with Montana instead.

    Montana, there is NOTHING like it.

    So, when you have a tag team of black and yellow, it doesn't matter what color clothing you wear, the dog hair shows. Got the same type of team.;)

    The hair from Goldens shows up too, but I can use it for dubbing!

    Picture #6 with broken wagon, do you all see someone or maybe 2 people behind the window? Or just my imagination?

    It's a ghost town for a reason?

    Beautiful pics. Perfect 4 weight waters.
