Re: “Hieronymus Park

great park, some good fishing and lots of trails to explore! Only bummer is dogs need to be on a leash at all times, and no bathrooms but Dariy Queen is a short walk away!

Re: “Council Grove State Park

Lot's of blue-winged olives out around mid-day. Plenty of trout rising in the slough downstream of the parking lot. Lovely fall colors right now, too. We saw four other anglers and what appeared to be a guided boat anchored up in the eddy at the bottom of the slough. Fish were still working when we left around 5:00.

Re: “Sprague Creek Campground

this is a great spot if you get on of the lake sites, otherwise you get to camp on the road with all of its traffic or inbetween the road and lake where all of the sites are very close to each other. we will not go back there

Re: “Freestone Climbing Center

I went here for the first time on a Friday evening, because if it's your first time on a Friday, Freestone waves the fee. I've never bouldered before, so it was a bit intimidating, especially since I took a fall from the very top of the wall, but the giant foam pads are nice. There isn't a lot of routes for beginners, but it's a really nice, supportive community of people who hang out there. I'd definitely go back.

Re: “Pattee Canyon Recreation Area

Grooming for the season is pretty much over here. Trails were last groomed on Thursday, March 7th. Only a quarter inch of new snow fell last Monday. Skiing is still pretty good though, so enjoy it while it lasts!

Re: “Pattee Canyon Recreation Area

Observations according to Missoula Nordic Ski Club.

On Wednesday, conditions were firm and fast. Earlier in the week, only a few patches of ice on the North side. Pattee was groomed and tracks set last Sunday.

Re: “Pattee Canyon Recreation Area

Observations according to Missoula Nordic Ski Club.

"About a half inch of freshly groomed snow (both sides) on Saturday, Feb. 23dr. Conditions are really nice but a tad slow.

"Grooming schedule: Since the forecast is for snow showers for the next several days, predicting what grooming will be necessary on which day is difficult. The groomer will hit it on both Sat & Sun mornings, and then it will be done as needed during next week. New tracks will be set when the snow accumulation allows."

Re: “Pattee Canyon Recreation Area

Observations according to Missoula Nordic Club.

Skate lanes on north and south sides were touched up yesterday. It was effective to knock down the frozen ridges, leaving a nice skating surface. The conditions are getting to be concerning, warmth, lack of precip, and deminishing snow pack. Hopefully colder temps and snow arrive soon. North side is packed down and icy.

Re: “Pattee Canyon Recreation Area

Observations according to Missoula Nordic Ski Club.

Meadow loop is skiing fairly well in Pattee, but the conditions are certainly demanding for your balance. It is snowing as I type. Coverage is still very good in Pattee and an inch of snow will make a world of difference. Picnic loop and Meadow got groomed Saturday morning. They were fast and skiable. North side hill, south side and downhills had scary blue ice in places. Not groomed so skate marks trip you up.

Re: “Sluice Boxes State Park

The sluice boxes are a very unique and stunningly beautiful 4 mile stretch of Belt creek. They start at the Logging creek bridge and continue for about 4 miles to the bridge at the base of Riceville Hill. There is a fairly decent trail the entire length but several (and very likely deep) creek crossings are necessary. Trout fishing all through here is excellent due to an abundance of nice deep holes. When I was a teenager my friends and I would wear boots (to push off of the rocks) and scuba masks (to look at fish) and body float the entire length. There is a very deep hole at a 90 degree bend that has a nice series of rock ledges for jumping (or backflipping) from. The scenery outside of the creek is amazing as well. The vertical rock faces on either side of the creek zig-zag the entire 4 miles similar to a maze. There are some railroad remnants that are best avoided though. All in all I think this short strech of Montana is one of the coolest.

Re: “Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park is a land of high-mountain adventure, a land that sets the senses soaring and the spirits winging. There is no better way to get back to nature and explore some of the most pristine untouched ecosystems in the country than through a visit to Glacier National Park.…

Re: “First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park

This place has been greatly improved and a visitors center has been added at the base of the buffalo jump. The trail is fun to walk. Lots of wildlife in the spring...just watch out for the baby rattlers!
