Getting out

Our Spring hike to Menan Buttes.
What a lovely afternoon for a hike. Here is Tony almost to the top of the butte. The holes in the rock are formed from the constant wind that blows in Menan.

Yes! finally to the top. We are looking North towards Montana. The trail takes you all around the cone. Its about 3.5 miles.

The Teton Range is in the backgound looking East. This view shows you the bowl shaped cone. Its filled in with dirt and sand so you can walk down and all the way across. We ate lunch in this spot cause the wind doesn't blow inside the cone. We had a great time!

Sometimes You Pick a Perfect Day

Somedays you just get lucky and find a perfect day. New fallen snow, the bluest blue a sky can be, with just a hint of puffy white clouds. Not a speck of wind or breeze, just the air passing by as you scurry up the trail. You haven't been able to find many of these days this year. The snow has been few and far between and temperatures have made it hard to stick around. We just happened to get lucky to experience such a day.

If you happen to get cold there is a warming hut with wood burning stove and wood floor. Its a great place to stop and have lunch or if you are really brave spend the night. Someday we may try this trail by moonlight.
