#CKGR you are full of surprises - however many days I am there are never enough. #centralkalaharigamereserve #botswana #elephants #lions #overlanding #overland #africaoverland #africa @sa4x4 @wild.wheels @oppositelockza @smartcanopy @frontrunneroutfitters @cosedivine One more parting shot from #Namibia 🇳🇦. Lost your #sunshine? No worries when you've got these @_lightforce supernovas on your front bumper. @oppositelockza @oppositelock4x4 @wild.wheels @sa4x4 #lightitup #sunset #overland #overlanding #overlandequipped #africaoverland #africa Namibia 🇳🇦 boasts a wide variety of landscapes, but the one element that unites them all is #sand. #namibia #namibrandnaturereserve #sossusvlei #overland #overlanding #africaoverland #truegrit @smartcanopy @oppositelockza @frontrunneroutfitters @sa4x4 @wild.wheels Most of the time a #winch comes in handy for rescuing other people. This Renault was buried to the gunwales in #sossusvlei sand. The VRS winch installed in our @oppositelock4x4 bull bar made short work of the problem (once we figured out the victim had left his e-brake on! 😆). Always practice good winching technique and safety. #namibia #sossusvleidunes 🇳🇦 @wild.wheels @oppositelockza #overland #overlanding ##overlandequipped #winchitwinchitgood @sa4x4

Now that temperatures in the far flung north of the country have dipped below zero and the snow has begun to lay in ever deeper drifts, I often find myself revisiting our adventures from warmer times.

These photos come from the higher elevations of the northern stretch of Montana’s Bitterroot Mountains. We visited here soon after we bought our Smittybilt roof top tent, and found some solitude even on Memorial Day weekend.

As opposed to their more southerly cousins, the Bitterroots of Missoula, Mineral, and Sanders Counties are not nearly as striking from the valley floor. But a little exploration up the many Forest Service roads that follow the lazy creek beds into the range reveal peaks, alpine lakes, and landscapes that are equally rewarding – and have a distinct identity all their own.

    1. Thanks! Julie does really good work, I think. I’ve been really enjoying the photography on your blog, too. We had an amazing time hiking in the Pisgah a few months ago, incredible country.
