That sounds about right. I usta go 3 miles in an hour, pretty easy.
I can't see the 60 lb. pack though, unless I'm packin meat.
Backpack camping is something I never got to do enough, of.
What Lujon may be referring to, is that "off the beaten path", up here can be difficult, or even impassible due to the terrain. It can reely slow you down, to say the least. Of course, I dunno how that compares with Montana.
Smitty of the North
You're right Smitty, bushwhacking slows ya down big time. What I meant by "off the beaten trail" was off the driven road. There is a very good trail down Slough Creek, in fact it's a 2 track dirt wagon road used to service the Silver Tip Ranch which is just outside the Park boundary and only accessible via the Slough Creek Trailhead. Easy walking. Now when I go up in the Beartooths, I plan longer stays and part of the travel is by trail and part off trail. The 60 pound pack is for all my needs for usually a 4-5 day stay including fishing gear. Going to Froze-to-Death Lake is an 11 mile trek that starts at about 6600' and goes up to 11,200 the first 9 miles then down another 1000' the last 2 miles. That takes me about 8 hours with pack and about 4 miles of it is off trail, but fairly easy off trail above timberline.
