So how did you get to this spot? All I ever seen around there are mean looking charcters with shotguns ready to blow a hole in you if you step on their sacred posted no tresspassing Montana Property? I hadn't been up that way for a few years and drove throught last fall and couldn't believe all the postings. :(

The best advice I give for rail-fanning Mullan Pass is to buy a detailed BLM / Private Land ownership map from one of the local sporting goods stores. A lot of 'West' Mullan Pass is actually surrounded by Public Land with narrow strips of private. You just have to know where you are. The eastern part of the pass toward Austin is largely private. Those shotgun toting Mountain men that own most of the property are actually some of the friendliest folk around. I have made friends out of quite a few land owners over the years on Mullan, just be sure you ask first before venturing on to their private land. It doesn't hurt to leave them a Thank You, with a gift card. I once picked up a Mountain lookin' fella that ran out of gas on Mullan Road. I returned him to his cabin for gas. In return he granted me access to 100 acres of his land if I am not mistaken. It is also not a bad idea to carry your own firearm while venturing in the woods on Mullan. There is a large bear population especially toward the Summit!

Excellent scene, Jason. I've been over that territory a few times and would love to go back.
