Loma, Montana pictures on MontanaPictures.Net (Page eight of nine)

 
    52205 To avoid the crowds in Fort Benton, drive east eight miles on Highway 87 to the
     junction of the Marias and Missouri river and launch your boat in Loma, Montana.  
   
   
      52205 If you plan to float the popular 140 mile "float" from Fort Benton to James Kipp bridge here is a tip.  
      Bring a sturdy umbrella and strong rope or nylon strap.  
      The sturdy umbrella will keep your brains from baking and can be used as a makeshift sail to fly down the Missouri river.  
      A strong rope or nylon strap comes in handy when you have fight a "headwind."  On one trip, we only made progress by pulling the raft downstream with a rope.  
      Of course, we could have just found a shady spot and waited for the wind to die down but that makes for a "dull" river story.  :o)
