Pintler Mountains Gallery
This peaceful winter scene, found beneath the peaks of the Anaconda-Pintler Range, is a fair distance beyond grid. Folks here in the valley are accustomed to an uncluttered view without power lines and all the modern conveniences provided by cheap electrical power. Imagine a home without a light switch on the wall, any running water, or going without a refrigerator or modern bathroom. Of course, homes in the valley are not that primitive, but do rely on solar power, propane generators, and wood burning stoves. Although solar power is still expensive, energy needs can be supplemented with windmills and water turbines. Those that live in an off-grid setting are found all across the country, from New England to California.
