Quake Lake Roadie, March 2017

Quake Lake in south west Montana was formed in 1959 after an earthquake dislodged an estimated 80 million tons of rock and debris that blocked the river and formed a lake. 28 people were buried under 300 feet of dirt as the slide took out part of an occupied camp ground. Now the lake has a skeletal forest poking up through the middle of it. The lake felt both awesome and daunting at the same time.

Local Rodeo event held at the Gallatin Fair Grounds here in Bozeman. Lots of passionate and very experienced riders here.

Ferris Wheel lights, July 2016

Sort of neat to see the different patterns that reveal themselves on longer exposures, seen here on the ferris wheel type ride (more like a long arm with people seated either end that swings around wildly).

Big Sky County Fair, July 2016

Took in the sights and sounds of the county fair at the Bozeman Fairgrounds on friday night. Super trippy late night wander through flashing lights and blasting noises….

Sunday ride out to Independence Montana, May 2016

Random weekend ride on a sunday to see how far down a dirt road I could get, and if I could manage to get up into the mountains yet to explore a ghost town and old mining site called Independence. Stopped in at Natural Bridge State Park along the way to check out the limestone landscape and tunneling river.  Awesome ride, until I hit snow at about 8000 feet. Plenty warm but the snow won out….. Giving it another month or so and ill try back.

Potosi Camping in Montana, June 2016

Found a wee spot for some high class camping up the valley from the Potosi camp grounds about 1.5 hrs from Bozeman. Great crew, some fun trails and epic setting. Summer in Montana is rocking.
