Lolo Pass Climbing

Went up to Lolo Pass the other day to climb. I hadn't been there for years, so it was nice to climb something different. Since there were three of us, I decided to bring the extra equipment to take pics.

Before Sage and I left for Yellowstone, I went into the mountains to check out some water Brad was telling me was excellent to fish. I had the best day of fishing to date so when we returned from Yellowstone, I promptly went back. I hiked in a few miles and started fishing the many holes. I was quickly NOT disappointed. I caught a few small guys in the littler pools, then found the deep holes where the larger fish were hiding. I fished for about eight hours up and down the river catching a total of 16 fish, most of which were 14" to 17". Once again, the river did not disappoint.

A few of the Cutthroats I caught:

Yellowstone National Park

After 12 years living in Montana, I finally made it to Yellowstone National Park. It is by far the weirdest, most bizarre parks I've been to. The geothermic activity makes the area one of the most unique places on the planet.

Boiling River flowing into the Gardner River

With limited time, Sage and I blitz the park trying to fit as much in as possible. We decided on the largest loop through the park we could do with hopes of seeing the most. As it turned out, it limited our time at each place.

Mammoth Spring

The park's roads systems were great, passing by nearly all the major attractions the park had to offer. Short hikes from the road got us to the spectacular views and bizarre sights while keeping us within our timeframe.
