For the love of the forest

If you’re grateful for the beauty and solitude easily found in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, thank the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and the agency’s summer volunteers. That the forest is remote yet easily reachable is due to carefully maintained roads and readable signs.

Prepping the field

Longtime local Brian Wheeler once described how the softball fields came to be in Big Sky: Boyne donated the land, which at the time was a rocky field with weeds and large holes. Mary Wheeler drove a tractor donated by Steve Barrett around the field and neighborhood kids threw rocks into the loader bucket.
