Desert Mountain

We went snowmobiling this morning up Desert Mountain. Great day for it and great company! Eric, Patrick and Aubrie of Swan Mountain Snowmobiling hosted an open house with tasty food at Abbott Valley Homestead. It was a great way to spend a Sunday.

Here is a view of the Canyon, as well as Columbia and Teakettle mountains (on the left and right respectively). The clouds moved in a bit, which was a bummer since it was all blue, sunny skies until we reached the summit, but thankfully the ceiling was high and I still got some great shots.

Here’s a view of some Great Bear Wilderness peaks with partial snow ghosts in the foreground. The views from the summit of Desert Mountain were spectacular. There’s a reason the snowmobile ride up there is called “the poor man’s helicopter.”

Glacier National Park peaks in the distance.
