Be careful if you run into Rip and the boys.

In West Yellowstone as I type this. Spent the last three days in the Park, Today at Mesa Falls in Idaho.
No more beautiful place on earth as this part of the world. Going home tomorrow. Been a great five days.

Like others say, That's too pricey for me. Nature, and the critters could care less. I'll post some pic's when I get home.
Look on Youtube for the bear eating the elk. The kill was September 18. We say him yesterday still feeding the the huge bull elk on the side of the Yellowstone river.

Western Montana, Wyoming, and Eastern Idaho is beautiful!!!

It awesome scenery. Spent a good 2 years there back in the very late 70’s early 80’s drilling oil/gas wells right out of high school and been out 3 times since.

Right there with ya. Love western Montana. In the summer! Amazing trip this July. Floated the Clark Fork and spent some great time on the upper portion or Rock Creek. Amazing dry fly fishing! Did an off the chart wilderness trip last year in the Bob Marshall, with an absolute great and professional group of guides, cook, stock professionals and supporting folks. Great outfitter helped with the logistics. Many of our guides, were ex-employees of P'sU. It's pricey, that's a fact! Floating the south fork of the flathead river on a six day pack trip, now that was amazing. The float and fishing was off the charts good, every single day! I'll be back very soon.

Meh... Who needs a fancy shmancy resort to enjoy Montana. Damn, my last 4 times through have been on 2 wheels (human powered) through mountains, plateaus, lakes and valleys. no need to give anyone a ton of money. Go travel and do it.

That's nice. Both of my parents are in their mid sixties and their health is declining rapidly. One of my mother's dreams was to experience the west and go "camping". They want to do this while their bodies can still take some of the activities. Out of all the shit people discuss spending money on when it comes to this website, I am sorry that this irked people with how I would like to spend my money.

It is a bit pricey for Montana standards. That being said, the area where it is located is some of the most beautiful parts of Montana. If you want to get the "experience" without all of the driving, especially with older people, then go for it. Everyone in Montana is so nice and friendly, and with a place like that, I am sure they go above and beyond(which is difficult here, because of the general kindness), and will show you guys a great time. Yes, it is pricey, but if you want to show your family a taste of Montana without spending hours in a car, then do it. I have lived here 3 years, coming from SC. When my friends come, we hop in the car and drive. A lot. If my parents were to come( in their 70s and not the best health), i would definitely do a place like you suggest. Kind of a "here is the beauty of this state, without traveling a ton".

Held my 50th Bday there.... Must get the tents on the river .... Amazing place...

We did a 3 day float trip in Glacier National Park first, then to Paws for 3 nights ..

Horseback riding, shooting, some more fly fishing, etc... Great food (butler/chef assigned to each camp site), drinks etc...

There is another high end resort in the area ... Rock Creek maybe ? My fiends went and said its a little better fyi

The only benefit i would think to staying there over a do it yourself trip is maybe they have the bears in check. And you’re running out of time this year before the weather turns

Here you go... Look into this one as well... My good friends are in the travel business and went to both Paws and The Ranch - they gave the ranch a slight advantage for the food ..Said it was Michelin quality every night ....

The Triple Creek Ranch is in the same area and is very nice. It’s all inclusive as far as meals and a lot of the activities. No kids under 18 allowed though

Was just out in Glacier the last week or so, stunning as usual. Saw these recent police blotters one morning....ah for a simple life.
