Drove to Gallatin National Petrified Forest TH and started hiking by 9:30 in consistent rain. By the time we reached Buffalo Horn Pass, rain had begun turning to snow. Higher up the ridge, snow began to stick. Eventually mountain wasn't socked in and began drying up. Successful summit in 3hrs, back to car, awesome day of fishing on the Yellowstone commenced when back out in the valley. A solid MT day
Fun hike! Lots of little pieces of petrified wood lying around the upper slopes. Hiked this one with my mom and she made it the whole way to the top! Pretty good for a flatlander who just turned 63! Thanks a lot for the awesome hike, mom! I am very proud of you! Best mother-son hike ever!!
