Wow, lucky man! I've been thru the mountains in Montana, but on the freeway. They are breathtakingly beautiful when your life isn't on the line.

First mistake:
He decided to take the remote Gold Creek Road across the Bitterroot Mountains, a route he had taken several times before and one he knew could shave more than an hour off the trip.

Second mistake:
He checked his cell phone — no service.

Third mistake:
"That is very rough country up there. There's nothing but big, steep mountains all around you," he said.

Rogers has health issues, including diabetes, liver troubles and a history of heart problems.

"The Indians say if a man ever gets in trouble, the wolf is your guardian angel and he's there to make sure he watches you until you get out of danger," he said.

Ahhhh, the Wolf was wondering if you would taste like prairie chicken!

Next time stick to the well traveled roads, and stay home if there is bad weather.

Good ending to a good story. Being from the area, the guy obviously thought he could make the drive. How many times have we seen or heard about somebody(or somebodies) who went boating, canoeing, skiing, or hiking in the name of being one with nature, and had to be rescued by the military or the local law because they weren't prepared, or felt that their GPS or even cell phone would get them out of any trouble? The troubling part of this story is to think that somebody might feel that the silver wolf should be a trophy and go after it. Sad.

Vikings fan said most of what I was thinking. This story was about a guy who was lucky to survive his stupidity but it isn't as bad as the guy in the Cadillac Escalade in Colorado that attempted the same kind of shortcut.
