Explore Montana: Lost in the Bitterroot Mountains
With their sharp peaks and sunny valleys, the Bitterroot mountains are a must-see spot for Missoula visitors. So, when Dany and Alex were in town with the girls last week, that is precisely where we took them. Our destination was the Glen Lake trailhead. However, somewhere along our way we took a wrong turn and ended up on a trail to nowhere.
Told these two to look natural, instead they did this…
Luckily, thanks to an intrusion of molten magma pumping through the earth’s core some 70 million years ago and a few subsequent glaciers, the Bitterroot range is chock full of impressive jagged peaks separated by U-shaped valleys, making for awesome views from just about anywhere in the range.
We found a cairn. Cairns are used as trail markers (i.e. lifesavers).
