However you probably shouldn't take the Prius on this "road"...

But if you take this road it is probably worth it...

Yep, I wouldn't take my Saabaru there either. Someday I'll trade it for a Turbo Forester so I can go on a road less traveled. Nice landscapes.

Nice images of Big Sky Country!

Another Jeep cleaner than mine. Wish I had those views around here.

Lovely place indeed, well done.

OMG - One time I drove up a mountain in Arizona in a rented Subaru. I talked to the park ranger, who suggested that I could take the access road off the back of the mountain as long as I "had four wheel drive". Five hours (and 15 miles) later I realized that not all "four wheel drive" vehicles are the same. I'm lucky I didn't have to walk those 15 miles...

Thanks to all for the kind comments. Ground clearance is what keeps a lot of vehicles off these "roads" which are simply little dotted lines on a map. The Jeep was sort of clean because this was the start of the adventure. It wasn't clean at the end. And I agree, the landscapes are special from the more remote locations. I say remote, but these two shots were within 20 miles of home. I'll be out most weekends and the terrain will start to get greener. Should be more to come.

I really miss Montana. We were a little east of Bozeman in Big Timber. *sigh* And now I'm stuck in New York. :-(

Gorgeous country out there! Do you do a lot of 4-wheeling?

I'm sorry. But maybe you'll get to come back! I'm really lucky to have been able to retire in Dillon.

I do more 4-wheeling in the winter than I want. But the rest of the year it's mostly on the little dotted trails on Forest Service and BLM maps. And, yes, 4wd is often required to get to the most interesting places. But I don't go bashing about like a lot of the guys that are much younger than me.
