Pear Lake

Pear Lake

Thought this would look good with the WordPress snowflakes too. Pear Lake is found along the Idaho/Montana border in the Evans Gulch roadless area about five miles up the trail from Thompson Pass, past Blossom Lake and Upper Blossom Lake. Photo taken on 7/23/12.

Our roadless National Forest land.

This past week the United States Supreme Court denied the state of Wyoming’s petition to review the Roadless Area Conservation Rule case bringing very good news for the millions of Americans who appreciate and want to protect the nation’s 58 million acres of pristine roadless forest land. The Roadless Rule affects all Americans because it protects land in our National Forests, land that is owned by ALL Americans, not just those in the states where the land lies. Press release by The Wilderness Society

Following are a few photos showing land that is not protected by the rule and then a few of National Forest land that is protected.

Pear Lake, Blossom Lakes ~ Evan’s Gulch Roadless Area (1)

For many years I have found it to be true that one of the best parts of an outdoor experience is the night before it starts, and last night’s stay at the Blossom Lakes trail head before today’s hike to Blossom Lakes and Pear Lake in the Evan’s Gulch Roadless Area was not an exception.

Today’s trip was one of those “150 photo” trips and this is the first of a series of posts about the trip and that area of western Montana.
