Camping in the Little Belt Mountains of Montana

(Lots of pictures)

Back in September we took our last camping trip of the year to the Little Belt Mountains in the Lewis & Clark National Forest. 

Headin' to the Little Belt Mountains

We stayed for four (4) days going home a day early because of bad weather.
This is where we ended up parking.


Beautiful mountains, a creek and a meadow to enjoy the views of while at the campsite.
We got to watch a fawn playing in the tall meadow grass under mama's watchful eye. Unfortunately the grasses were to high to get any pictures of it.

There are lot's of beautiful dispersed (free) campsites there for those who don't need to have all the modern conveniences and rules of a KOA or monitored style campground. No electrical or water hookups and definitely no WIFI. 
I do take my laptop so I can preview the photos we take to make sure we're getting the shots we want instead of getting home and finding out they were blurry.
 
Here are a few of the named campgrounds in the area.


Bill & Ruth Korell Memorial Campground




There are 3 or four free campsites here with a beautiful creek, picnic tables, a vault toilet and a water pump, there is also a large two-story cabin that can be rented through the forest service.

Fred M. Ellis Memorial Campground


There are at least 6 free campsites here but no amenities only a few picnic tables. It's still a nice campground with mountain and meadow views.

Hay Campground



This is a Forestry campground that has 3 or 4 site with picnic tables, fire pits and a vault toilet in the main area and 3 or 4 sites up the road just past it with picnic tables and fire pits. 

Saw these while driving down a dirt road....

Someone spent a lot of time on these and run almost a mile down the creek.

Relics from the past are everywhere....



as are the beautiful views.

And finally here is our campsite on the day we left for home.


Snow in September, not unusual for over 8,000 feet up. 

That's it for our camping trips of 2017. Now that we have the 5th wheel the hubs wants to start our 2018 camping season as soon as the snows melt. Speaking of snow, it's still snowing here.
So until next post........

Take Care & Have a Great Weekend

What a way to start off November


Fluffy white crap from above.
or
Angles having a massive feather pillow fight.

If you've read my blog for a while you know which is my choice.



It started around 9:30 am and is still going at it with BIG flakes turning my yard into a white wasteland. And because of the weather report with the temps in the 30's and 20's for the high's for the rest of the week and into next week it's sure to stick around. 
Time to fire up the wood stove and make some cocoa or hot tea.

Take Care & Stay Warm

Watch out for all the little ghosts and goblins tonight everyone.

A Win & A Sunset

I a member of The Stitchers' Village and a month or so back they had a drawing for a fabric orphan so I entered and much to my surprise I won this beautiful 18"x27" piece of hand-dyed 16 count Aida from Picture This Plus.

Pretty shades of gray.
I think this would be perfect for a Halloween piece or smalls or even a stormy weather scene.

I caught the ending of the sunset the other evening.


Such a beautiful sight to see with the sun reflecting off the huge storm cloud above.

That's it for today, I'll try to get the pictures ready from our last camping trip to share this weekend.
So until next time.......

Take Care & Have a Great Weekend
