Montana Dirt Bike Adventure

My friends and I left my river property on the Clark Fork River 4 miles east of the city of Clark Fork. Our adventure was this:

Find a way on dirt:
To Troy Montana
From Troy to Libby Montana
From Libby to Thompson Falls Montana
And then back to my property on the Clark Fork

It is only 40 miles by highway between Troy and Libby, but it was a 138 mile dirt bike ride. From Troy to Libby we run in to 5 downed trees and several hundred yards of snow. The pics are of two tree crossings and the track in the snow is me cutting a track for the others to follow.

We used the OnX trail app. and my DrySpec bags worked perfectly again. It rained at least for a while every day. More an more of that area is designatd Grizzly Bear Habitat and many trails that showed open on the app were actually gated.

We did not meet our goal as one of my friends had a hard get off and fracture some ribs so we had to find the highway and get him to the hospital in Libby to make sure he was ok. He is fine, just some fractured ribs.

But the trip was fun. Pics attached.
