Sidney, MT High 75 Low 44
I was born and raised in Sidney, MT which is only 51 miles from Glendive. We haven’t been back to Sidney since my Dad died in 2010 and I really wanted to visit my old stomping grounds.
Along the way we stopped at Intake Fishing Access on the Yellowstone River. Most of Montana’s fishing access areas have primitive camping sites. Intake has sites that are right on the river and even though the campground isn’t well taken care of, it was a pretty place. Especially in the Fall with all the leaves turning.
In 1904-1905, the diversion dam and ditch were established at Intake. The dam diverts water from the Yellowstone River into the big ditch which in turns waters thousands of acres of ranches.
Part of the campground area.
Hey Dad – what are you doing in there without me.
A lot of the trees had lost most of their leaves but there were a couple that were still gorgeous.
At one time Intake was initially a town of promise, but this school is all that remains.
