2003 Fall Camping Trip to Southwest Montana

By Phil Sauer

..

The first week I spent in the Gravelly Mountains camping at 9,000 ft.
I road my Honda 90 all over the many trails and roads.
The weather was sunny and warm every day with very cool nights.

Each evening I converted my pickup into a cozy camper

..

The second week I headed over to Yellowstone National Park.
The cool mornings made the thermal pools even better.

..

The evenings are some of the best part of a fall camp. Often I sat by the fire reading and listening to coyotes.
One night the elk bugled all night right near my camp.

..

The last part of my stay I headed back to the good old Tenderfoot in the Little Belt Mountains.
There the fall colors were at their finest.
