Reaching the midpoint of my trip. I'm in Missoula hanging for a few days. Of all the great pics, I chose this one to post here because the national grasslands don't get enough credit. It was too hot to hang at Ft. Pierre NG, but I am so glad I stuck with it and found a spot in Thunder Basin NG in East Central WY. Totally free wandering, free camping, and it was super exciting to startle a few wolves in a little ridge I was exploring.
While my favorite spot is probably the Black Hills, I really had forgotten how beautiful Bighorn National Forest is. Also hoping to stay in Shoshone NF on the way home
