    Nice find!

    That double rainbow must have been a great sight in person. Thanks for the stoke.

    Had some fun in the northern Bridgers today. From the Fairy Lake TH, headed up the still-snowy basin to Sacajawea, then over to Naya Nuki to ski the Great One. Sunny when I started down it, socked it by the time I started booting back up, and some thunder to really make it interesting. Lost a pole on the boot back up - downclimbing to retrieve it would've been stupider than booting up already was. Headed back the way I came and was able to ski from the saddle north of Sac all the way down the drainage to a fairly short distance above the parking lot. All in all, a solid July ski day complete with no fewer than 4 different forms of precipitation.

    I had friends in town so we hiked Beehive Basin along with about 100 like minded people.

    Yoga Pants..... there were maybe 5-10 pair that were worthy and at least 50 that should have been illegal.

    Do women really think that is a good look when they are carrying an extra 30-40 lbs?

    Wow the Gallatin is really muddy today! Yesterday it was blue and today looks like the Mississippi. What happened? Looks similar to when the YC had the leaking retention pond.

    Afternoon T-showers up Taylor Fork tend to do that. There is an area called the Blowout that runs off every time it rains up there. All the horse traffic around Slide Creek doesn't help.

    Not Bunion is correct, again. The gallatin is much clearer upstream of the Taylor fork. Didn't know about the "Blow Out" but know the Taylor Fork was muddy this spring.

    Doppelmayr has been busy on Flat Iron this past week getting another lift installed. The lift tower footings have been excavated.

    Some steep glades off the backside that might be another good go to when the IKNO shows up. Low elevation though and kind Sse facing.

    Based on a few runs way to the east (skiers right) of Little Dogie to the Poop Chute that area held snow well last season. I am optimistic that there will some powder stashes when the main area is tracked out.

    Interesting location for a lift. This is the first I've heard of this going in.

    Mainly intended to service the ski in/out for the Highlands area. Can you get to Bighorn from the top terminal? Or So-Co?

    Yes, SoCo and TWolf are accessible from Flat Iron. The lift line was cut to the Highlands last fall and no other trails have been cut. The challenge for less confident skiers is getting back to the Lone Moose from Andesite, unless there is another way through Spirit World to get back to the Highlands.

    At least three of these Aircraft Control Point markers on Flat Iron. What is the purpose, part of the Highlands lift construction?

    Those are typically used to reference aerial photos. They are probably collecting aerial photos for engineering plans or trail cutting for the new lift.

    Thanks, I didn't know that. Based on location, the aerial photos are likely for engineering plans to support the planning for the large development of ~500 units between Thunder Wolf and the Lone Moose lifts that will straddle the Madison and Gallatin county line.

    Reccos on 2-4 hour hikes near Potosi? Taking a date over that way to soak and we want to do a nice hike. Is Albro worth only going part way? I think the full round trip is alot. I am not used to walking up trails at all. I always just ride a bike. It's faster and more fun

    2012 SW Montana Conditions, Stoke and Whatev Thread

    Well back in Bozeman after my trip to Canada. Posted up on the maggot fishing thread but thought I would share here. (I know wrong forum).

    Tough year due to some eastern thunderstorms. We got pounded each day and the fish were really sluggish. Caught a lot of pike on the fly and a musky on hardware but only follows from musky on the fly. I kept at it and on the last day the fishing gods gave me some last day magic in the last hour of my trip. Right at magic hour I found a musky willing to play. One shot to get it right. It turned on my fly, fed downward, I felt the weight and strip set as hard as I could with my 9wt. From there it was anxiety and insanity. Hoping knots would hold and I wouldn’t mess it up. When I finally got the fish to the net I let out a Ric Flaire “Whoo” as I landed my first musky on the fly. The first two pics are of that fish. Then some others from the trip.

    Looking forward to now getting back to summer trout, dry flies and hikes to some lakes.

    Still pretty flexible with my schedule so keep me posted if anyone wants to get out.

    Hope the first few weeks of true summer are going well for all you guys.
