Squeaking Out A Serene Commune With Nature.
A huge thanks to fellow Woody Boater Fred Goughnour and his amazing eye for sharing a last gasp with us and keeping Gasp Week going. Take it away Fred
Definitely the latest cruise on the Missouri River ever… At about 3600′ elevation and right next to the continental divide we had close to 70 degrees and almost no wind. Cruising thru the Gates of the Mountains which is a mile of over 200′ cliffs of awe inspiring views.
About 7 miles up the winding river, which is part of the Helena National Forest . We checked out the small community of Holter Lake, only accessible by water. Only a half hour from Helena, a day away from snow & travel advisories. We squeaked out a serene commune with nature.
What an amazing landscape!
I’d like to know more about Fred’s boat also. Very cool!
Holy Moly, talk about some god’s country boating! Just beautiful and it looked like total solitude without another boat or some jerk on a wave runner to ruin it!
Thanks for sharing.
like Troy I want to know about the BOAT? Looks, per the Deck, like my Argentine????
nice pics, thanks
John in Va.
Amazing scenery! And looks like Fred had it all to himself – perfect.
WOW… great scenery without other boats around… yes …one word.. Perfect!
Im rearranging boats around in the Boat Barn and Boat Yard here…. have to decide who gets inside this winter and who has to be properly covered and protected outside… Great weather in Virginia today…
Good God. I’m sure we all dream of a day on the water like that. Amazing, and probably the best header ever too.
Matt could milk this another day by guessing what the boat is. Cause I was wondering myself. I’m saying something Canadian like a Billy Johnson, as the Canuck’s call a W J Johnson or maybe a Seabird. Outstanding photos, the geological formations that created all this would be a very interesting story.
That’s my 57 Correct Craft that I modified into a racing runabout 20 years ago. After restoring the Blue & Gray Arabian I took a year haitus to work on my own stuff, ( traveling, family, old cars & some boats ). My wife is a geologist so she has the rock pictures and spent the next day explaining the formations, a great tour guide!
