A Tobacco Roots Adventure

By the time spring break was here, KT and I were due for an adventure, so we set our sights on Branham Lakes deep within the vast Tobacco Root range. It was complete with large packs, an 8 mile slog in, clear skies and calm winds.

I have heard that there is the greatest concentration of 10,000 ft + peaks of any mountain range within Montana, and from the top of Thomson peak we could nearly see them all. With ideal camping conditions, not another human seen for days and possible wolverine activity near camp, this was a surreal adventure that will most definitely be followed up in the spring for some ski mountaineering!
