this looks to me, and makes me think of "The River Runs Through It" by Redford:). For the past few years we've been having real trouble with all terrain vehicles and motorbikes in the mountains here, in Poland. From what you write I reckon it's been sorted out in the States?

thanks for the observation. As far as sorted out. No we still have people fighting about access and violating the established guidelines. That is pretty much the story here in the states. The Jewel is a rarity as it is so close to a populated area and it has benefitted from protection and respect of the area. Prior to the 1970's it was open to off road and it was really tore up. Have a great day and thanks for the comments.

Thanks for your reply. I thought US police were more helpful than ours. Anyway, you're right - lucky you!
God bless,

There is only so much a few law enforcement officers can do in the wilderness areas like Montana where there are literally millions and millions of acres. We have groups that represent each side and they are working together to ensure access to off road areas in appropriate ways and locations.

I hope we here can come to the same point over time. It just has to take a few years - hopefully.

Thanks Blair. The Jewel Basin is a treasure that we are truly blessed to have in NW Montana. Perhaps you can visit it someday. As I respond to you I can see it out my window. Lucky me!

that your door/window opens to the south side of Heaven.

It's my dream that I should someday visit this Heaven.
Peace, Larry!

I am glad my grandparents decided to settle in the Flathead Valley. They came here in 1936.
