From Missoula, head East on I-90 and exit in Drummond and take Route 1 South, The Anaconda - Pintler Scenic Route. If your RV'ing and you're up this way, taking this scenic route is a no brainer...

As you gain elevation, the road does being to fill with snow. The elevation gain is nothing drastic, but the snow line just happens be at this altitude. It's quite, no one around. Afraid of bears? Jess and Ayden were so they went back to the RV. I insisted to carry on.
The hike itself is not really worth it, but the solitude and sound of nothingness was amplifying. I did not see any bears, but I did find the Waterfall:
The road leads to a campgrounds, which I assume gets use in the summer months. I was persistent and trekked past all the open sites and found the single track trail to the falls. Finally off the road, the trail itself was paved as well and lasted a minute. Not much of a hike, but overall, we were in a remote area with absolute nothing. It was Great!
