Pine Butte, MT

Located on the S. Fork of the Teton River outside of Choteau, MT, the Pine Butte Guest Ranch is run by the Nature Conservancy. We were invited up with a friend to attend their Spring Clean Work weekend. We raised new fence and mended the old, collected firewood & thinned the nearby forest. Folks were put up in the variety of cabins that surround the main lodge. In the lodge another group of volunteers prepared our delicious meals. The celebration cumulated in a smoked pig on the last evening. A beautiful location, great people and a historic ranch made for a good work weekend. We were glad we had the opportunity to help out, see the ranch and meet its wonderful caretakers.
