    How the heck can you kill an 830 lb grizzly bear, destroy your radiator and not have any idea what you hit?

    My carpool guy drives down the center of that road with the highbeams on. We're talking ~11:05 pm, when there are more critters than cars. I often see a fox crossing the road as well.

    cause im guessing he hit it at night.....if you have been on the highway that goes through Lincoln you would understand.......me and my wife have about hit everything from deer to elk to moose to bighorn sheep to cattle and horses on that road...lots of it is densely forested with lots of blind corners.....prolly had no clue weither he smoked a bear or cow or what, just that he smoked something big........

    lit? the dang thing darn near is impassible in winter, we only take it when there is no snow.......only roads that are lit around here are inside city limits and even then not always........that Highway 200 through Lincoln is going through wilderness areas......we use it as a "short cut" to go from Great Falls to Missoula in late spring/summer/early fall.....2 lane road, many miles between small towns, goes up and over the continental divide.....why would we light them? cost a fortune and not gain much.....

    xvart, curiosity is killing me and I have to ask... what "densely forested" (and apparently rural?) road have you ever been on that is lit?

    Plenty of the highways around here have dense trees that come almost right up to the highway, and they are lit. I don't know if he means the road weaves in and out of trees or that it is cut away for the road, which is why I asked.

    xvart.

    I've never been out that way, but here, none of the roads or highways have any lights for at least 10 mi in either direction from here. Even then, it's spotty and only clustered around little towns. Blink and your through them, back into the non-lit areas.

    I'll never forget when one of my relatives married a guy from Chicago (she moved up there, but now divorced anyway). His family came down and couldn't believe what a "wilderness" we live in and how unsafe it is compared to city life! LOL They had it just backwards.

    I remember them commenting how pitch black it is here at night in any direction and that we need "street lights". Talk about ruining the area...

    The way they went on about it, it was like they were afraid of the dark, like the boogie man was going to get them or something. City people baffle me. LOL

    Just pristine nature. The way we like it. :-)

    Local road. I live about 800 Ft back to the west (left) of this road:
