Hike Blodgett Creek

Weekly hike.

Blodgett Creek. Should be a great hike for snowshoeing. I've never been there but have been to most of the other trails nearby. It is in the Bitterroot Valley, and easy to get to as long as there's not too much snow on the trailhead road. We can bail a mile or two north Mill Creek if the road is impassable.

    Looks like nobody else from Msla is here, so I'm going to stay at the north end of the valley. Catch you some other time, Victor.

      I am sorry, Peter, I tried to find you but I just couldn't find the meeting spot. My navigator wasn't working properly. I drove around the area for a while but all that snow was just too much for my car. Catch you another time when it won't be so much snow.

    Since I haven't heard from the other Missoulians and Victor said the weather is iffy down south, I'm postponing until 11 to leave Missoula, 12 to meet. Victor, if you want to go do something by yourself, you might as well. I'll wait for the others to wake up ....

      In the morning - 8:30 a.m. The good news is that it's not as cold as it was for the last couple of days. The bad news is that it's snowing and it's kind of murky - you can't see the mountains.

    If at least two of us go from Missoula, it's still happenin'. I'll be at the WalMart (NW edge of parking lot) a little before 9 anyway. It'll be positively balmy, maybe even 20 or so by afternoon! Ummm, like it was forecast for today. Well, it'll get here tomorrow. Yeah.

    Hey Peter, is this still happenin', given the ridiculously frigid temps and all. How much of a hike are you planning? (How long exposed? Bodies, not film...) I walked for half an hour yesterday, in two coats, two layers of pants, two of gloves - my own arc of down and wool. Not bad if the wind didn't kick up. (Temp was -9.) So.... I be curious.

      btw, I would def. have to carpool from msla or somewhere on 93 (one of the stop and park sites?) my car couldn't make it up a mtn rd.

    At the turnoff of Canyon Creek Rd to the SW from Blodgett Camp Rd. There should've been a marker on the linked map. How much snow and ice have you gotten down there? The trailhead is pretty far up (in both senses) the road.

      Thank you for the reply. There's a lot of snow in town. I think there's going to be much more up on the trail.

      Figures. I'll change it to a more accessible trailhead.

    I would like to join but don't see where exactly to meet in Hamilton? Canyon Creek Rd is a long road.

    Do you two want to carpool? We could meet at the old WalMart on Brooks at 9:00.

    Where do you want to go? Weather dependent, of course. I have snow shoes...
