In July 2021, I traveled to Montana to hike the Gallatin Crest Trail before attending the wedding of a friend in Big Sky, Montana. It was four days of beautiful scenery, solitude, sketchy route-finding, and bear-avoiding bliss. Here are the entries from that trip.

July 13: Gallatin Crest Day 1: Hyalite Creek Trailhead to Crater Lake
