Overlook of Flathead and Echo Lakes! (Keith Hammer photos)
Six Swan Rangers skied Peters Ridge Road on a misty-freezy Saturday, January 20, 2018!
The inch of fresh snow was a bit sticky on the way up but a freezing mist slicked it up for the glide down!

A spring provides a good setting for a homstead at the beginning of the road!
The reward is a nice view of Flathead Lake and the valley bottom, before the roads swings back into Krause Basin!
Olsen Creek flows year-round . . .
. . . and offers a good travel corridor for critters!
The Swan Rangers meet every Saturday at the Echo Lake Cafe for breakfast at 8:30, leaving at 9:30 for a partial day outing in the northern Swan Mountains and foothills.
They carpool from the Swan River School parking lot next to the Cafe.
When hiking or skiing in bear country, remember to carry bear spray and avoid the 3-D's: dawn, dusk, and darkness.
Everyone is welcome!
