Three Forks, MT is always a favorite lunch flight from West Yellowstone. The views while flying along the mountains in the Madison Valley are fantastic.
Once in Three Forks we usually stop in for a bite at the Sacagawea Hotel (the oldest building in town), if the restaurant is open. If there's time, a visit to the town's museum is a must. If you're a fan of really old, cool gadgets, you'll love it.

Snow capped mountains are a constant sight on the way to Three Forks. Brad took this pic from his Cessna.
A snowy winter and cool wet spring caused the mountains to have a lot more snow coverage than usual for this time of year. Generally just the tops are dusted.

The group poses for a photo with the traditional adornments behind their heads. I swear one of these days I'm going to post a whole page of nothing but photos of rabbit eared
pilots. Actually, I have enough to do an entire website.
The group does some digesting on the porch of the Sacagawea Hotel after consuming an overly large meal (as usual).
