Rosebud County High Point Trip Report
Date: September 4, 2001
Parked where Jerry Brekhus did for Treasure County.
Followed their route up Treasure highpoint, built cairn, left register, then went 5 miles cross country up and
down ridges and valleys, using cow paths which are all over the place, and bushwhacked some up to
Through the big pines up there I could see the radio tower off to the SE. Went out the Black Hank
Drainage, picked up a good ranch road, which took me to the Colstrip Road, thence back to camper.
Saw coyote and 2 wild turkey. On the drive west on Colstrip Road heading toward the Sarpy Creek Road (I
came in from west, while the Brekhus's came in from the east) I was waved to stop by a guy with a huge
truck carrying a front loader-backhoe.
He chewed me out for hiking on his land, but said he wouldn't press charges.
Claimed he owned the land on both sides of Colstrip Rd. I asked if he'd give his name and
telephone number so that others could ask permission.
He wouldn't give his name and said he wouldn't give permission.
Trip Statistics: time, distance, elevation gain = (7.75 hours, 17 miles, 2600 feet).
