I just got back from a awesome hike. I did Blue Mountain on the South Western side of Missoula. It took me 6 hours and 45 minutes. What a hike. On the way up it went from sunny to downpour rain. Then on a ridge it started to snow and it got so cold I almost turned back.
Once off the ridge for the final accent I warmed back up again and when I reached the summit it was sun shining again. I got great views of the Mission Range and Lolo Peak.
On the way down I just got off as a huge blizzard engulfed the mountain. I also got great pictures of the storm.
As I descended the wild flowers were so beautiful I couldn’t believe it. Every color … So awesome. As I came down I took three breaks in open fields of flowers and enjoyed the view in sunshine.
Oh, what a day. I love it here. My home.
