SCM I don't think your special place in Montana will get overrun soon.
Unless it has "easy access" and a large population center nearby.
And I don't see an Instagram feature of notoriety in the pic.

All that said,,,,, I would go there. Wink

Yup can't trust bison....

With so many developed campsites off-limits, the crowds at normally empty primitive spots have been shockingly crowded the past few weeks. We were happily surprised to find this spot so empty. It was our first time camping there and I only knew about it because I used to work at a nearby mine reclamation site.

And that's not a bison. Just a run of the mill bull that came ambling by to check out the mud pit we had parked next to.

And if that wine is a Merlot, I'm told it pairs nicely with Black Angus steaks prepared over a wood fire.

Just sayin ...
