I go up to Valier MT every other year. You are not kidding about the drive... on the way up it's OK. The way home after walking your legs off is a killer (26 hours of seat time). The scenery and cool nights are wonderful. Nothing like finding a shady watering spot with the dogs at the end of the day. Thanks for jogging memories of nice trips. It's a trip where both the dogs and hunters are snoring by 9PM the third day.
