Hall Peak (Bob Marshall Wilderness, Montana, USA) by 


8/24/11 – Featured in THE WORLD AS WE SEE IT Group.
9/3/11 – Featured in the WILD NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY & WRITING Group.

Brian took this photo on his camping trip last month. He, Jimmy and their friend, Thomas, drove to the end of a back road and hiked 2 miles almost straight up to get to Hall Lake. This is the scene they found when they were about halfway up to the lake.

Hall Peak overlooks the lake and is part of the Swan Range, east of Swan Lake and south of Big Fork, Montana (USA). This area is part of the Bob Marshall Wilderness.

Unfortunately, There are currently three forest fires burning, south and southeast of Hall Peak (Big Salmon Lake Fire, 2800 acres, Hammer Creek Wildfire, 1800 acres, and the South Fork Lost Creek Wildfire, 1215 acres, which is the closest to Hall Peak). Since they are wilderness fires, no man made structures are threatened. It’s the policy of the forest service to let these fires burn out by themselves unless they threaten communities. Most of the state’s firefighting resources are being used to fight the West Riverside Fire near Missoula.

If you don’t mind doing a lot of hiking, without any trails, Hall Lake is worth visiting as it’s loaded with trout.

    Beautiful.

  • Thank you! I would love to be able to go there, but I’m getting too old for hiking up mountains. I prefer taking pictures without a half mile of the car.

    I can’t do the hiking thing either so I really do miss out on some things. Rusty is willing to go alone, but that can be very dangerous for him so I just do without.
