Quick fall backpacking trip

My daughter, who doesn’t have much free time due to grad school and training for the biathlon, and I still managed to squeeze in a 21 hour, 14 mile trip to the Lee Metcalf wilderness just outside of Bozeman. She found a trail she hadn’t hiked that just happened to be right where it looked to be raining. But by God we were going to squeeze it in no matter what, and actually we lucked out and mostly escaped the rain. The reviews painted a bleak, uninspiring picture of the trail but we found it to be quite the opposite; lots of pines, a creek to follow, and beautiful fall colors. We decided that the bad reviews were just meant to keep the tourists away…
