It's one of the areas we stage at with motorcycles so we have been entertained watching the crawlers many times.

Not hardcore offroad, but here is a picture of my f350 at Ford Creek in Glacier National Park on the way back from Kintla Lake close to the Canadian border.



It was an awesome trip. I love Montana!

Nice pic Rogue, I can see you enjoy photography also.

We rode through the Flathead Valley in British Columbia (north Kintla Lake you mentioned) on an off road trip in the fall of 2016.



We were riding Flathead Valley Road South to North with the goal of reaching Crowsnest by sundown. This is a very remote area, did not see a soul for 100 miles.

Some plans just don't work out on this type of ride. At one point Flathead Valley Rd crosses the river.

Not that day, the bridge was washed out...



Tough choice here. Try to cross or turn around for a very long ride out late in the day with a storm blowing in. Crowsnest was not that far if we crossed.

The river was maybe only a foot deep but the bed was large round boulders. Water flow was not an issue.
We spoke for awhile of crossing but without another bike with us the thought of dropping that bike in the river brought us to decide on a turn around.

We decided to ride out west to Morrissey praying to the fuel gods as the rain started coming down, I had a one liter spare bottle on board but we were running low.
Things went well and the spare fuel was not needed.

Flathead Valley is beautiful, teeming with wildlife.

Now that is an awesome story. I glad to hear it worked out. It can get tense when no one is around if something goes wrong. I would have continued north, but North Fork road is closed at the border. :-)

all of these scenic pics are making me very, very jealous. My wife is from Alaska, and we visit occasionally. Her dad still lives in a tiny town in northern BC. In fact we'll be there and in the Yukon for most of August. I just won't be able to bring my truck . I'd much, much rather have it there for all the fun but the drive from Dallas would be ridiculous. Instead of exploring in the super duty I will be staying on the roads in a rented minivan. If that were happening in any other part of the world I'd probably be embarrassed... but I'm pretty sure all the overwhelmingly beautiful nature will keep me distracted

Our latest adventure. Went to the end of a road, a road that is practically "off-roading it" a lot of the time, then drove off road to get to this camp site. The host referred to it as "the best camp site in North America". You be the judge.

The glacier is the Kennecott. In front of it, all those black looking mounds are part of the lateral moraine of the Root glacier. In the very far left of the first pic, toward the bottom, you can just make out part of a glacial lake that has formed in the last decade. 15 years ago, that lake didn't exist and what you see as the moraine in these pictures was much higher.

We hiked from the ghost town/abandoned mine of Kennecott all the way to the head of the Root glacier. It was amazing.

Again, I know this is a bit different "off-roading" than normal. Personally, I think it's extreme enough to include (taking 7+ tons of Super Duty + camper + gear where most would be afraid to drive their pretty pavement princesses). I hope you don't mind.

No worries here, your pics are awesome. Off roading is off roading.

It matters not to me the venue nor the vehicle.

More often than not our Super Duty like yours is the method by which we get to where the real off roading begins.

Great pics Warbird!!! I was in Mc Carthy last summer. It was an amazing ride up there. The Wrangell St Elias Range was by far my favorite.

Stay safe up there.

Great pictures!

We did a 4,000 mile ride exploring much of Colorado's off road areas on our BMW GS a couple of years ago. I could spend many weeks in Colorado riding, so much to explore.

From much longer ago but the last time I have been off roading near Silverton.

It was June of 2003 and my '02 7.3 liter F350 was on it's first long tow. This our campsite above Silverton where we staged for our rides...



My wife rids a Quad, all these pics above Silverton...





I did a solo ride over Stony Pass that day and got a little lost, ended up getting back to the trailer after dark. Today even 15 years later I am still hearing from the wife on that one. It was supposed to be a short ride. That is an '02 KTM 525...
