Another “Big Hole” day

Taking advantage of a break in the weather today (cold, dry, partly sunny), I paid a visit to the Big Hole Lookout and Peak, the last for this year.

From the trail head at about 5,600 feet

Start of the trail to the lookout

to the old Cabin itself at 6,922 feet

Big Hole Lookout

it’s a little over 2 miles on a very nice trail in the TeePee/Spring Creek roadless area of western Montana’s Cabinet Mountains.

Trail 368 just above the trail head

I will think often, during the winter, of this old friend awaiting my next visit come spring.
