Big Sky Coutnry For Real

Riding from Boseman to Helena to Missoula, Montana has been characterized by wide flat river valleys surrounded by mountains. This is the real Big Sky Country.

Hello guys! Great blog and incredible pictures. Do you think that your trip will take you through southern CA at all? If so, look Matt O. and myself up. He is in Burbank and I am in Riverside. Eitherway, your trip is awe-inspiring.

Hi nomads:
Wow, Missoula already. Great shots, clouds make for drama in the Big Sky. Did you get a good soaking on the way to Helena? Found out from a friend who manages a ranch near Trail creek road that they have been trapping for rattlesnakes, cleared around 600(!) out of the ranch. Thought you'ld like to know that! See you've changed your strategy for camping, when you get a chance do a search in the touring forum for "stealth camping", good tips from experienced tourists there.
Cheers.
