Blue Mountain/Poo Mountain Recreation Area

April 16, 2007 at 2:36 am 2 comments

Yesterday, Montana once again had better weather than Virginia.  It was beautiful and sunny and in the upper sixties.  I got to rollerblade in my 17th U.S. State (took the Bitterroot Trail System from McCormick Park to Southgate Mall).  Later in the afternoon Larry, Lindsay, Jennifer and I went for a quick “hike” in Blue Mountain Recreation Area.  We are also joined by the two dogs (Juna and Jasper) and a young woman named Rose who possess a radiant complexion, a beautiful smile and a very, very loud laugh.   The park is extremely dog-friendly.  As such, it has earned a nickname from the locals – “Poo Mountain”.

Well, I didn’t see any dog poo on our journey but I did get to see a lot of great views.  Some pictures from our outing:

    Hello! Found a link to you and decided to randomly check ya out… stopped by your Montana pages right off the bat and wanted to say I enjoyed looking at your pics and reading about your time there this spring.

    I went to the U of MT for a little while there in Missoula. Hiked Blue Mountain dozens of times. So very much fell in love with Montana’s mountains! Having grown up in the east, I realized the east doesn’t have mountains like the west does. Yeah, they’re nice in the east but in my opinion, you simply cannot beat the Rockies!!!!

    Listen, should you find yourself out there again, try the Rattlesnake Rec Area on the north side of Missoula. Or better than that — Heading down the Bitterroot Valley to Hamilton, there’s a trailhead every few miles or so, beginning a hike that’ll take you up into the mountains and, not too far beyond, into the Bitterroot-Selway Wilderness Area (if you wish to venture that far.) Just simply BREATHTAKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And if you’re there in the heat of summer, try a float trip a few miles down the Bitterroot.

    Wow, I’m missing Montana… if I ever again choose to live somewhere Outside of Alaska (where the mountains are REALLY mountains) it would probably be back in western Montana. Just a slice o’ Heaven on a Stick, Mick… ya just about can’t be it!

    Well, i look forward to checking our some of your other pages, Happy Trails, Ciao 🙂

    Thanks for your recommendations. I really adored my time in Montana and hope to return there again one day. If I do, I’ll be sure to check out those trails.
