Hamilton, MT High 89 Low 49
We left Butte heading south on I-15 and then turned West on Hwy 43. We followed the Big Hole River through the canyon on a beautiful drive. The Big Hole is known for it’s trout fishing: brown, rainbow, and cutthroat.
We saw lots of fisherpeople. The water wasn’t very deep. This time of year the rivers are starting to dry up. But it doesn’t stop fishermen or women. Sorry this is so blurry but I almost missed the shot.
This picture gives you an idea of how deep the river is. I told you, everybody is fishing.
There are all kinds of places to camp for free along this river. I’m sure in the Spring when the fishing is the best, most of the camp sites are taken.
We are in Hamilton tonight at Angler’s Roost RV Park. $21 for a riverfront site. It’s not a big park and a little tight getting around all the trees but we have a beautiful pull thru site and this is the view from our front door. Jim and the girls are taking a walk to check things out.
Jan had told us we had to have a hamburger at Nap’s Grill and that if it wasn’t one of the best hamburger’s we’ve ever had, she would buy our lunch. Well, I have to say Jan is off the hook. This hamburger ranks right up there with the one we had in Superior, AZ. It was fantastic. Jim and I split their 3/4 lb burger and we had enough fresh cut fries for four people.
We didn’t have lunch until almost 3:00 and we figured we would be the only people in the place. Couldn’t have been more wrong. We were lucky to get a table. The place was full.
We headed back to the RV Park and I caught up on reading blogs. Any guess as to what Jim was doing?
