Hell's Canyon ...

Today's photo is a shot of the old Hell's Canyon Guard Station, up in the Highland Mountains west of Silver Star ... it's another one of the Forest Service recreational cabins I hung out at last summer. A really lovely spot, like so many in the state.

I confess I have mixed feelings about the Highlands ... the geography is thoroughly inviting, but the mountains really suffer due to their proximity to Butte. Most of the local visitors to the Highlands clearly don't respect the land, and it shows.


  1. This is an area I've never heard or seen much about. The sagebrush in the mountain that!

  2. Yep, I love those sagebrush-and-trees mountains, too ... somehow that evokes the "real" west to me much more than the heavy forests do. And I had the place entirely to myself, which made it even better!
