Here’s a shot from yesterday along the Continental Divide Trail near Helena, Montana. With the new snow we’ve had, I decided to go snowshoeing and see what I could find along the way. The weather was truly awesome with quick moving snow flurries and short bursts of sunlight. It’s a relief to see some snow again as the heat wave we’ve had the last couple weeks melted just about everything in the valleys.
The Continental Divide Trail near Helena is just part of the 980 miles that run through Montana. The complete trail, the “King of Trails”, stretches from Canada to Mexico at 3,100 miles with over 70% being designated trails and roads. The rest is unmarked. Here’s a link to the official site for the trail if you’re curious to learn more. Continental Divide Trail Alliance
