South-Western Montana--Spectacular Country!

We recently went on a trip to the south-western part of Montana.  Amazing country!  We stayed in a few more forest service cabins in some of the most beautiful country ever.  One certainly gets very spoiled living in Montana and then you find yet another hidden treasure . . . under Montana's Big Sky!

The next cabin we went is called Black Butte and this cabin is in a wonderful area of Montana.  It is remote, high elevation, and spectacular country.  We will be heading back tot his spot again I am sure!

Forest Service Cabin Rentals

We spent a few nights up at McGuire Fire Look Out earlier.  (Earlier in July) It was during our hottest weather here in north-west Montana this summer.  Being up higher in elevation helped, it was still really hot for us winter folks.

McGuire is an older look out and was built in the 1920s.  It is not in the best of shape and really needs some TLC.  It is located in a gorgeous spot and the views are unreal!  One can see into Glacier Park and the Cabinet Mts.  The trail that leads to the look out is in great shape and was just a perfect 2.5 mile hike.  I have not carried a full back pack in years----nice to know I can still do that easily.  There was tons of broken glass around the look out which we spent hours picking up.  The inside of the look out is as bare bones as can be which is fine, but the forest service should get up tot he cabin and do some maintenance to keep the look out safe and its guests. 

Bliss-On . . . I am so grateful!

A few blissful moments from my summer so far.  Summer has a long ways to go and we still have a lot of future adventures on our plates! I love to relax and who doesn't?  Some people do find it difficult to slow down and relax.  I have no issues with relaxing at all!  I am so grateful to a husband who lets me relax to my hearts content!
