Wilderness

The rain in Montana this spring has been making climbing nearly impossible. The past few days Nathan Cooper and I went on a voyage to explore some unique Montana wilderness (actually a wilderness study area) located in....... Eastern Montana?. We explored the Terry Badlands located north of the Yellowstone River in Terry, Montana (a sleepy Cowboy town). We got rained on the whole time (we had to walk an additional 4 miles, one way, because the roads were to muddy), never the less, we enjoyed solitude and experienced genuine wilderness. The pictures are from the trip, we left everything as we found it, and I plan on going back.

Cheers, Loren

Chimney rock, and yes I tried to climb it but...
