A couple weeks ago we decided we needed to hike more, while the weather is still nice. So we headed out to a peak that’s not too far from Bozeman called Storm Castle. Here is the critical info:

It a good distance at about 5 miles and has some elevation gain, but not too much. The great part is that it’s only about 30 minutes from the house. ¬†Also, part of this area was the backdrop to the movie A River Runs Through It.

I decided to fight my fear of heights and go up to the very top.

The uniform for hiking: White button-up hiking shirt UPF 50 and a hat.

Clematis seed! Very cool – I thought it looked like something from the muppets.

There was a little tree up at the top that was filled with these cool looking pine cones.
