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.
Spent a weekend down in the Gravelly range of mountains in south western Montana. There was no real plan, but after checking a map we found a remote lake with some dubious trail marked in about half way. After getting lost in the woods on friday night in the trusty Tundra, we ventured south and eventually found our trail head. Pretty rad mix of trail and bush whacking. All in all a pretty fun little mission!
