15 of our Favorite Photos from a Montana Summer

In many ways, this summer has been one for the books. From beautiful weather to early summer snowstorms and seeing our boys riding beside each other in Montana’s Bob Marshall Wilderness to Lester having his first summer in the woods (not to mention COVID-19), we’re incredibly grateful for a summer of hard work, long hours, horses and mules, nights by the fire and endless hours of quality time on the trails.

While life has been spinning on around us and there’s been much unrest and unknowns in our world, we are thankful to disconnect, spend time in the most beautiful place in the world and introduce our Montana paradise to guests and friends from across the country.

As we look back on this season full of pack trips, here are 15 of our favorite photos from this summer.

From our family to yours, we hope you found lots of moments of peace and beauty this summer and that you were able to create lifelong memories in the place that makes you the happiest.

Until next time, happy trails.
