Tour of the Anaconda-Pintler Scenic Route, Saturday, July 16 & Sunday July 17

Philipsburg, Southwest Montana

Philipsburg, Southwest Montana

We are heading to Anaconda and drive the Anaconda – Pintler Scenic Route past Georgetown Lake and Phillipsburg. This is a short 65 mile drive starting in Anaconda and ending in Drummond. The route goes past beautiful Georgetown Lake and Phillipsburg. We will stop and spend time in Phillipsburg that afternoon. We can mine for sapphires, visit the Granite County Museum or the Granite Ghost Town.

We have block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Express in Butte.  Their number is 406-782-2000 under the Absaroka Region Porsche Club.  These rooms will be held until July 8th, so make your reservation soon.  We are meeting at the usual place, the Holiday near Gable Rd at 8:00 am with an 8:30 departure.  We will stop in Whitehall for lunch.  Either picnic or there is a Subway and A&W right off the interstate.  If we want to be brave we can go over Pipestone Pass from there, or get back on the interstate on to the Pintlar Scenic route and Phillipsburg.  There we can check out the Granite County Museum, mine for sapphires at Gem Mountain and have a cold one at the Phillipsburg Brewery.  I have not selected a restaurant in Butte.  There are several good ones so we can decide once we get there.  Maybe you have a favorite place you could recommend.
