Elk Lake- Great Bear Wilderness


We headed out for a ride with some friends into some steep country, near Glacier National Park. All in all it was only 12 miles but technical, steep and by the end of the day , it felt more like we had done 40 miles. I rode Maggie and she did well overall.


Tricky water crossing, as you come down the trail, there are logs and rocks to step over in order to drop into the creek. Maggie is proving to be a thoughful trail horse in tricky footing and carefully picked her way across.

This photos gives you an idea of some of the less steep areas...

Wilderness?...The word just conjures up somethin` special!...Tight turns along rocky ridges, forests that go on...Ahh well! I`ll look at your pictures and settle for our near "wilderness", whats left of the Scottish Highlands.

Someday I hope to see the Scottish Highlands, until then, I will just have to dream about it through Diane Gaboldon's Outlander series..only problem is that I am finally on the last book...
