    We were able to carve out a bit of time from our hectic schedule, so loaded up the wife and kids and met my sister and future BIL at a USFS cabin in the beautiful Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. The cabin was situated on the Middle Fork of Rock Creek and surrounded by gorgeous country and we had perfect weather. Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend getaway!

    Wanted to share a couple pics. We did a bit of fishing (wife caught a healthy little Rainbow) and mostly hung out. Got a bit of fire play in, and had some good food.

    Got to use the Yakut from the passaround for some food prep and fire prep (fire prep pics turned out too dark)

    End result was an awesome shrimp boil by lantern light!

    I should have taken more pics, but was preoccupied with family time which hasn’t been easy to come by this year!

    Thanks for looking!

    Yup, he was in doggie heaven. He was too busy running and playing to pin down for a pic. He did awesome.

    Looks like it was a great trip. Beautiful place for sure. What is the second building, next to the cabin?

    Gorgeous. I've driven through that area on the way home from the Bitterroots. Looks like a great place to explore.
