On Nov. 6 we had a two vehicle expedition to show visitors the Montana Mountain road east of Mesa. I drove our slightly modified 04 Grand Cherokee and Jeff drove his modified white 2012 Wrangler Unlimited with Jo’s sister Arla as his passenger.
The pictures are taken by a Canon 350 d digital camera.
Jeff could not resist taking this extra credit side road up a ridge to a lookout point. After admiring the view and turning around, he is coming back down here to make room for a quad to .reach the top.
We had a brief stop at the parking area next to a water tank just before the last hill to reach Montana Mountain. The road was nicely graded to the turnoff for the Rogers Trough trail head, but the road beyond has not seen a grader for years!
Or group was Lindsey and Rosa Ashby, Arla Olson, Jo Strong and Jeff Clyde, plus me.
Here is our lunch stop after circling Montana Mountain on its north side.

View to the north of our lunch stop parking area. Two well-used fire rings show that it is popular with campers and hunters.
The road took us down through 17 switchbacks to reach the bottom of Revis Canyon Wash where the road followed the creek, sometimes in the creek itself. From this spot it is an easy drive back to Highway 60 east of Superior.
