Yellowstone County High Point Trip Report
Stratford Hill (4971 ft)
Date: December 29, 1999
Author: Jerry Brekhus
Today, under the Big Sky, my wife and I reached our first Montana county high point.
From the I-90 exit at South Billings Boulevard drive 10 miles south on Blue Creek Road.
Turn right on gravel Cormier Road and go 11 miles with 9 right angle turns.
Here the road makes a U-turn back toward Billings. From the U, we crossed an unposted fence
and strolled across the grassy mesa for a half-mile, gaining 60 feet.
We observed a grave marked by a tombstone with the name Stratford on it
and a windsock next to it. About 100 ft. NW we located BM BLUE dated 1925.
The weather was sunny and warm. Billings hit a daily record of 60 deg. F today.
