  4. That’s a beautiful view to be able to look out over. Well worth the ride, I’d say.

    • The mountains above the road are protected roadless area and the road makes an approach possible. It’s just across the river from my house and so I can visit there often.

    • Thanks Reed! There is no end to the views from the mountain tops here. It is a little work to get there, but well worth it.

  6. Great view and of course a beautiful subject. I went out into the bayou’s myself yesterday and did some boating and some walking around. Of course everything down here is flat so there are no vistas like this.

    • I would have enjoyed your trip too. I loved the coastal region of North Carolina and spent a lot of time there.

    In my next life I’m aiming to live in Montana methinks. The mountains are superb.

    • It’s a beautiful place. I wish I could show it to you in person Vicki: perhaps if your are looking for guide in that next life… I can’t imagine that I will be any place else.

    • The quad gets me closer to the trail heads in winter, but it’s still too early to get to the high ones.

  10. I looked at that first photo, and remembered something that’s been buried for years, both tune and lyrics: “Down in the valley, valley so low, hang your head over, hear the wind blow…”
    The peaks and valleys certainly do belong together. In this case, both are beautiful.

    • You are right, that old song fits the picture. The valleys look so different from above and it gives a very different perspective.

    • It’s fun to ride, and lets me go where larger and heavier vehicles cannot go on the roads in winter.

    • I’m pleased with it because it adds a couple months to my access to the back country. And the challenge of riding in winter conditions is also enjoyable.

    • That’s the valley in which I live. It is blessed with those mountain ranges with 7000 ft peaks lining both sides of it.
