Dear fellow hikers:
I’m going to be attending my sister’s wedding in Missoula, Montana in early July (I have thanked her many times for moving to such a great place for me to visit when I need to take a break from Brooklyn). I plan to linger for a while to take advantage of the spectacular hiking in the area. In fact I’m thinking of lingering for a couple of weeks, as I don’t need to return to Brooklyn until mid August. Also, I’ll be renting a car, so I can drive to…wherever. I’ve done some hiking in the Missoula area, but have not explored much or the region. As well, I’ve never seen the Pacific Northwest.
I’m looking for a places I can park my car and take long day trips or 2-4 day packing trips. In my present state (lack of) conditioning I’m probably good for 8-15 miles a day.
Any and all suggestions are welcome. As well, if you think I should include any more specific information in my query, please let me know.
