Rode about 150 miles on the Pintler Veterans Memorial Scenic Highway. Between Anaconda and Drummond, MT. Beautiful Georgetown Lake about the middle of the ride.
The mountain views along the ride were awesome.
This is Silver Lake.
The reservoir impounds the North Fork of Flint Creek.
We did see many great homes along the lake. Lodgepole pines enclose Georgetown Lake and the surrounding mountains, providing a home to abundant wildlife including moose, elk, white-tailed deer and even bighorn sheep.
Georgetown Lake is a large mountain lake spanning close to 3,000 acres at an elevation of over 6,000 ft.
The lake assumed the name of Georgetown when the dam flooded the area known as Georgetown Flats.
We did climb up and down one exciting mountain with several switchbacks where the speed limit dropped to 20 mph.
Anaconda is the end of the byway.
This sign was spotted on the Southern end of the highway.
