I love Hallett Peak. It dominates so much of the skyline in the Bear Lake area. I have this one I took 7 years ago:

Very nice. I worked for the Forest Service in the Swan Valley, on the east side of the Missions for a summer in 1966. Spend many days hiking and fishing in what was then the Mission Mountain Primitive Area.

Yes. It states that you can cancel with a refund of your $25 but not the $2 fee. I payed for 3 days ($81) & canceled a week in advance and they did not refund any of it. Sent them an email 6 days ago & have not heard back. Very clear the money was refundable or I would not have booked. vmad

So you spent part of your youth in the Missions, and are now in Colorado ..... you've picked some pretty awesome places to live!

I miss the mountains! Living in Middle Georgia, USA, there are hills nearby. No alpine terrain. British Columbia, Canada was a former home of mine. Mountain heaven!

I have been lucky... I've also canoed the Boundary Waters and Quetico Provincial Park back when I was in high school in Minnesota, lived for 2 years in a beach house on one of the Family Islands in the the Bahamas. But the mountains are definitely my first love... inherited that from my mother.

Both images are from the Mission Mountain range, in western Montana.

Wow Tom, these are epic photos and must have taken a lot of time and effort to get.

Thank you, Pippan.

Yes, I have spent a LOT of time in that refuge during the autumn Elk and Deer ruts when these animals are the most active and visible.

In fact, I recently gathered some data on my photographic ventures, and found that since 2008, I have spent a total of 258 days at that wildlife refuge there in Montana by the Mission Mountains, almost all of which has been from mid-September through late November. . So I guess it's kind of like what they say about the blind squirrel finding a nut every now and then ...... spend 258 days there, and eventually dumb luck will strike and you'll see a Deer or an Elk against that mountain backdrop.

Lots of great shots on this thread, but these are awesome, Tom.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

A lot more than dumb luck I reckon. 258 days will end up a significant portion of your life. But there are a lot worse places to spend your time.
