i'm going back into D7 backcountry again in Sept with family, we'll see how it is now. Havn't been there for 8 years.
Not sure if you were the one I told, but anyway, my Grandpa was born in Stevensville. My GG Grandmother was a Metcalf, Lee Metcalf (former US Senator from Montana) was my Dad's cousin. We almost retired there, but my wife said it was too cold in the winter...ha. Gramps always said it was the banana belt of Montana! Right now I'm looking at 6" of snow still on the ground....go figure.
