Pitamakan - Dawson Loop

Pitamakan – Dawson Loop 2017

If you were to ask me which hike is my favorite hike, I probably would tell you the Pitamakan-Dawson Loop. I set out with a group of donors and staff from the Glacier Conservancy to do this loop and the sunny day, fantastic loop, and a boat ride was one for the books. Sinopah Mountain […]

Climbing Spot Mountain and Red Mountain

A big shout out to Blake Passmore and his […]

Rockwell Falls

While my love for the Two Medicine area tends to focus on the amazing ridge walks and open views, places like Rockwell Falls add another amazing layer. This wonderful waterfall, a little over three miles from the Two Medicine boat dock, is a nice level walk to the beautiful main falls that looks like a […]
