Pilot and Index and Approaching Storm

Pilot and Index peaks in Wyoming, near Cooke City, MT. The Cooke City to East Rosebud trail comes through this area. When my two sons were each in their twenties, they made me hike this 26 mile trail with them “backwards”, from East Rosebud lake to the Cooke City side. It’s almost all uphill going that way. Thought it was going to kill me!

Mining City

Having lived in uptown Butte for awhile, I frequently found myself walking past an amazing array of historic buildings. This particular day I was gazing upward at the old Metals Bank sign, just as a modern commercial jet was flying over. The juxtaposition of the old with the new was striking. I believe that the defunct bank is now home to an excellent sports bar!
