We thought we were looking for Good Creek but ended up going into the Miller Creek Demonstration Forest, part of the Flathead National Forest. I'm not sure what a demonstration forest is but we didn't see any demonstrators. Nice thing about the Montana forests, don't hardly ever see any demonstrators in them. Just saw a few whitetail deer. All they were demonstrating is how graceful they can be when charging off with their long, white tails flying. I would have loved to demonstrate how graceful I can be whilst chasing after them.

We decided to walk rather than drive into the forest because it's still a little early and we were in Shadow (Ford Focus). These single track forest service roads can get a little dicey during the melt. Shadow has about two inches of clearance and no four wheel drive.
Miller Creek was a gushing. I always love to here water rushing. I'll bet the folks in California would like to hear it too only in their own creeks. Sure glad this little corner of the world isn't having water problems, at least not at the moment. Never know when that might could change. Mother Nature can be plenty fickle, or so Kinsey says.

As luck would have it our timing could not have been better. No sooner did we reach the car than the clouds let fly with a burst of slushy hail.

Ciao for now!
