Today we decided to go on an adventure or a wild goose chase depending upon your point of view. We were trying to find the Parker Homestead, but our map wasn't much help. I have directions written down now, so I will try later and hope to blog about it in a couple of weeks.
In the meantime, we had quite the adventure driving around the back roads near Willow Creek Montana. We took a bit of a loop starting out from Bozeman, headed towards Three Forks on the 287, but we had to wrap around from Willow Creek and then head back. No luck with the homestead, so we eventually hooked up to the 84 and back to Bozeman.
Along the way we found these abanonded structures on the edge of Willow Creek. There's a house on the property, too. It looks pretty rough, but is a bit newer in terms of disintegration. My husband wondered if it had been part of a mine due to the very tight chicken wire blocking off the entrances of the second building pictured here. We both found it interesting that the building in the first photo had snapped in half.
While we were on our way back to a paved road, we startled this Red-Tailed Hawk or he happened to take off at that moment, hard to say. However, if you look really close you'll see it has a very tasty mouse meal.
