Bozeman Back Door

Time and Distance:  94 miles, a couple of hours, not counting a lunch stop in Livingston
 

Start with a cruise past Bridger Bowl Ski Area, then north and east as the mountains fade behind you, and into the high prairies surrounding Wilsall.  At the junction with Highway 89, you're looking at the spectacularly wild backdrop of the Crazy Mountains.  Put them on your left with a right turn to the South, and cruise through Clyde Park, and down the long gentle hill to the Yellowstone River plain.   Livingston is home of Dan Bailey's Fly Shop and the Wilcoxen Ice Cream Factory.   The dash west on I-90 can be VERY windy, so beware.   Lightly laden 911s have been known to disappear forever (I swear!!)
