Leaving Montana ...

Since yesterday's photo was a shot of a backroad way into Montana, I thought today I'd give you a photo of a backroad way out. This is a photo I took a few weeks ago of the international boundary between the U.S. and Canada ... I'm standing in Montana, and the land on the other side of that gate is part of British Columbia.

This is the old Trail Creek port of entry, just west of Glacier Park on the North Fork of the Flathead. The crossing was permanently shut down back in the mid-90s, but as you can see from the road the level of traffic was never extensive. The old buildings in the background served as the port of entry into Canada.

I used this port of entry once, back in the 80s. Got there in early afternoon, and my car was the first one of the day.
