June 19th marked the first full month of my service with the Montana Conservation Corps, and the day struck in the midst of my second hitch, a fast paced, cut-and-run slam of a trail clearing in Flathead National Forest.

Thunder Basin, as the name would suggest, is a geographic depression.  Towards the north are the Rochelle Hills, small buttes studded with short grasses and cactus with a flat top, and you follow those hills around to make a horse shoe shaped ridge of buttes and low mountains.  These hills define Thunder Basin’s grasslands.  The horse shoe of ridges stretches in a curve from the north to the southwest, maybe 12 miles from point to point, and everything in between are rolling hills, cactuses, short buffalo grasses, Pronghorn, rabbits, snakes and Prairie Dog holes covering the ground from the base of the ridges in the north to the far horizon in the southeast.  However, many of those holes have been abandoned…

A well deserved 5 day hitch on the Selway started and ended with super rad weather!

What do you do when you forget your SYCL’s birthday?! Rely on another MCC Region to save the day.

The invasive crews took a hitch to Northern Idaho this week, and camped in Hellsgate State Park outside of Lewiston, ID, on the banks of the beautiful Snake River.
Highlights of the hitch included: bald eagle sighting, beautiful orange and cloudy sunsets, exploring a roadside cedar grove, crossing the Washington state border, seeing a roadkill bobcat up close, and loads upon loads of native/invasive plant information.
