Trying Out The New Toys

We were smarter this morning—up early, walked and took off on the 4-wheelers while it was still cool!  And we had a ball—we went up the East Boulder to Moccasin Lake. 

The wind blew in the smoke from the multiple forest fires burning in Montana so the scenery was not as good as it could have been plus there was the smell of smoke in the air—but in spite of smoke it was a glorious morning.  I am NOT an athlete and have no desire to ride these machines hanging off the side of cliffs, I have no desire to race up the side of mountains—I just want to ride along, look at the gorgeous scenery, take photos, stop and have snacks and be with my husband and pooch. 

Michael has traveled the route we took today but only in winter on a snow machine—he said it was a whole different world with no snow on the ground!  Wildflowers were everywhere in spite of the lateness of the season, the little creeks were still running—it was just beautiful.  We are going to love these new toys!

The wind which brought the smoke also brought cooler temps so I guess it was a good trade???


  1. I'd be a real slow rider too. No hotdogging for me! Nice picture results from your ride.

  2. Just imagine how beautiful that would look with only the creaking of saddle leather and the clicking of shod feet ghosting down the trail.

  3. Reminds me of when we first got our 4 wheelers...... Guess that's why we now have 4 of them. A real nice way to enjoy Gods World.

  4. Those quads will get some good workouts. Good fun and great scenery!

  5. It looks like you have a whole new world to explore with those quads - great photos!

    JB must be joking - 1HP over those powerful Hondas?

  6. Looks like a great way to get off the beaten path and see the beautiful sights.
