Could’ve sworn I’d posted this already, but apparently not.
When I was a kid, I rarely explored west of Great Falls. I stayed mostly to the east–from the Highwoods to the Monarch area. We’d camp at Holter, but never explored much between Great Falls and Holter.
After a little bout with Covid last December, I needed to get out of the house. So on the morning of January 1st, I loaded up the dog and we took a drive. Mornings are always best for random rural road trips, in my opinion, and this one didnt’ disappoint.
We wandered past the buffalo jump to Square Butte, then over to Cascade, and wound our way back home. The full moon was still visible when I drove through Cascade, but I couldn’t quite get the vantage point I wanted without going on private property.
It ended up being a great way to start the year.
