Musselshell River as alternative
« on: July 26, 2014, 10:42:24 pm »
I rode the musselshell river a couple weeks ago, from White Sulfur Springs to Forsyth. I wish to tell people to check out Ingomar if you go that way. Ingomar is about 40 miles up US Hwy 12 from Forsyth and I found it enchanting as a classic western town, out in the middle of nowhere. There are no services, other than a saloon called the "Jersey Lill' and an old school house with what the locals call a bunk and biscuit that rents for thirty dollars a night. You can also campout in the town park. Food is really good at the saloon but they are only open from ten am to ten pm so no breakfast served.
 There was a stretch of the road that was under construction just west of Harlowton. Roundup had a city park down by the county fair grounds but only one metal picnic table. Harlowton has a nice park called Chief Joseph park. The Conestoga RV in White Sulfur Springs was very nice also. All in all it was a very nice alternative to the interstate hwy along the Yellowstone river or hilly hwy 200 east of Great Falls.
 
May the wind at your back always smell like home.
