Off of the Beaten Path
Just south of the town of Square Butte, Montana and just northwest of the actual Square Butte there are some great formations and photo opportunities. Out on Flat Creek road I was able to find some great shots that capture the beauty of Central Montana that is rarely seen. I highly recommend the trip between Fort Benton down to Stanford, Montana. From this road you have so much access to unlimited scenic views, and photo opportunities. From Great Fall up to Fort Benton, down to Sanford, and Back to Great Falls is about a 166 mile round trip. To see some of the things along the way such as down town Fort Benton, Lost Lake, Square Butte, Huckleberry ice cream in Stanford, a burger and a beer at the Brew Pub in Belt you may want to budget the entire day. Whether you are a photographer or just want to get away with your family for the day this is a great day trip. To say it is off of the “beaten path” is an understatement.
