Silver Cloud Campout 6.9 & 6.10.17
Silver Cloud Campout
Words & Photos by Brad Hodge
In only its fourth year since inception, the family farm gathering known as Silver Cloud Campout has grown up to be a full fledged music festival. In Montana we like things comfortable and friendly, so it should come as no surprise that our up and coming premiere music festival is held on a family farm, the beer tent writes your name on your beer cup and dogs are allowed to roam the grounds of the festival at will. I mean if there wasn’t a music festival happening, there certainly would be some critters roaming these beautiful grounds. The site is nestled in the mountains of western Montana, nearing the border of Idaho. There is no shortage of hiking, biking, river floating and fly fishing to be done in the down time from a stellar music line up.
Saturday was filled with sunshine, lots of socializing and another day of great music. I took advantage of being close to Silver Mountain’s Bike Park (the Pacific Northwest/Northern Rockies favorite bike park) all day, and jumped back into the music action with the early evening show from the Shook Twins. This powerful ensemble delivered one of my favorite sets of the weekend. They were followed by Colorado’s season pros Whitewater Ramble for a delightful set.
