    If you two decide to do Waterton Canyon. I live 5 miles from the entrance and would enjoy joining you.

    Depending on the weather and canyon road conditions it is sometimes better to go by Mtn Bike. I have 5 mtns bikes and could hook you up.

    food's recommendations are good ones! Waterton Canyon is about as easy of a walk as you'll find with some really great scenery. I have never hiked that trail (road!) and not seen wildlife. I've probably walked it about a dozen times and almost always see some big horns near the dam. You can walk in and out in just a few hours time without working too hard. It's basically flat, although you are going up with every step.

    I don't know much about the sights south of here. Have not been to LaVeta, but it is on our 'want to see' list. Course, you're always welcome to visit Casa Cannibal while you're here. Also, rental cars at the airport are stupid expensive. If you can get one offsite, you'll save yourself a bunch of cash.
    I'll PM you my contact info, we will be arriving around 10am Friday morning March 2nd

    Ah man, I'm not going to be around this weekend. Did you bring your gear? I'm going out with a couple of friends from this evening through Sunday.

    Just checked the canyon conditions. They have reopened. I don't know if there is any snow on the road.
    The offer for a couple Mtn Bike is still open. The first mile is kinda crappy and you will be wondering what is so special about this place.
    True me, By mile 3 you will be going wow and if you make it to mile 5 it's double wow. The dam has picnic tables for a great alky stove hot chocolate
    with a little snapps.

    I answered your PM with my cell number. Give me a call when you get settled in the hotel.

    May your mileage in the backcountry exceed your post count.
