Ennis, MT High 74 Low 31
We still had some wind to contend with on our 88 mile jaunt to Meadow Lake Campground on Ennis Lake. This is a free campground right on the lake.
We followed the Madison River down through the valley. If you are a trout fisherperson, this is the place to be. There are campgrounds everywhere along the river and some of the best fly fishing in the world.
The fields are alive with the sound of pronghorns. This is only a small portion of the herd.
At Norris Junction, we saw this advertisement for a radio station.
The Meadow Lake Campground is about eight miles north of Ennis. There’s a two mile drive down a washboard county rode and if you meet a cattle hauler coming from the other direction, you back up and pull over on the shoulder as far as you can.
It is well worth the drive. However, it is not big rig friendly. Jim figures 32’ would be the longest that would fit.
Watching the sun go down behind the mountains made for a beautiful contrast between shadow and light.
Lots of mule deer wandering through the campground.
In the morning we were awakened by the sound of shotguns. It’s duck hunting season here in the valley.
