Trip Report Magnificient, Marvelous Montana!

Jump to last reply

Who we are: Four adult couples who travel together every other year for hiking, fellowship and great times. We range in age from 45 to 62. All of us are in good physical condition.
Where we went: We flew to Billings, MT and drove rental cars to Red Lodge, MT.
Where we stayed: Blue Sky Cabins between Luther and Roscoe, MT (about thirty minutes from Red Lodge)
Because there were four couples we booked the entire resort. DH and I stayed in Granite, which was absolutely lovely. The cabin had very comfortable beds, luxury linens, a huge jacuzzi tub for post hike soaks, and a very nice living room/kitchen/dining room area with a fireplace. Many of the features of the cabins are made by the owner. Their personal care in decorating is very evident. They have put a high premium on romance and guest comfort and privacy. It shows!

Tammy and Kevin Luoma live on site, but maintain a very low profile preferring to let their guests control contact. They were very helpful any time we called on them for dinner suggestions, hiking information.

Where we hiked: Our weather ran the gamut from snow, sleet, and rain to gorgeous days. It was generally between 45-70 during the days, which is quite nice for hiking. We had no mosquitos, but the black flies about did me in on one hike.
We bought Day Hikes in the Beartooth Mountains by Stone and Hiking the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness by Schneider. Both books are excellent guides. I would suggest the Schneider guide is the more thorough.
1. Becker Lake-this is a great hike but we would have been better off to save it for day three or four after we had made the altitude adjustment. This hike starts at 9,000+ and left a couple of us pretty winded.
2. Mystic Lake-an excellent hike on some of the best maintained trail areas I have used. There are several points where one is crossing large boulder fields, normally a challenge for me as I have horrible balance. However the trails were so well maintained even I did them without a problem.
