  2. Jeff says:

    You the “wwoman”!

    Nice shot…just want to go down hill and take a dip…

  3. Don in Tennessee says:

    Looks like good fsihing. Did you take a SKINNY DIP while you were their?

    Another great shot!!!

  4. MN Roxanne says:

    Now skip the wading and go for a swim – this lake is just too inviting!!

  5. Candice in Alabama says:

    Woo Matt – You certainly look to be all by yourself – watch out for Sasquatch!

  6. Yeosaph Ferguson says:

    Only don’t call them Flatheads. You may get scalped. They are known as the Salish, or Kootenai depending where you are.

  7. Gigi says:

    What a refreshing scene. Bet you jumped into the lake and swam the whole day ;-)

  8. Scott says:

    How I would love to build a nice cabin right there!!! Matt is a lucky man to see all this beautiful nature!!!! Keep the pictures coming, I am loving everyone of them!

  9. Karen Too says:

    Drop a line in there, and catch something for dinner.

    so matt is relying on google maps walking, for directions? doesnt seem to me like GM would be ‘recommending’ this route. perhaps matt is taking ‘poetic walkers license’? otherwise he would have gone from ovando, mt, to missoula, mt, no? instead of taking more ‘treacherous’ roadways? your thoughts…….

    • Barb V from Michigan says:

      I thought the same thing, Charlie, that Matt took poetic walking licence and traveled off of the recommended path. Can’t blame him after miles and miles of Highway 200. This route seems more of a “walkation” from the busy-ness of the paved highway of trucks and speeding traffic.

    • Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

      Yes it did. If you click on Matt’s detail of my trip at the top right of the home page and click on route and then click for close up on map, google maps did take him this direction. I wonder whether someone that does the google mapping actually walked this path. Some of it doesn’t seem safe enough but it is where google took him.

  11. Dionne says:

    water appears very low–loved the pic of the road–we use to go on those with our motor home when i was in jr. high and high school! crazy

  12. Jim in AR via MN says:

    Is this called Two Medicine Country???…or is that further North???…anyone???…

    • Lori says:

      I believe you are referring to Two Medicine Lake (actually three lakes) and surrounding area, which is about 150 miles N. of where Matt is right now. It’s on the SE side of Glacier N.P., just North of East Glacier Village. Just rode by it two weeks ago and got some beautiful pics.
