Today I was hiking in a very remote non-motorized area of southwestern Montana, at 8500 ft elevation, just down from the Continental Divide. I spotted a tiny blue piece of paper on the trail and could hardly believe what it was: a scrap from a Snow Cap Lard box! Here's the scrap, the map location, and a picture of the surrounding scenery. Also a full box for those who have never seen this brand.

Do you think someone was soaping up there?? :shock:

That's an awesome find! My aunt lives between Missoula and Helena, and she says there are lots of homesteaders up there.

Ya, I suspect its true purpose was for dutch oven cooking. Lots of folks here use horses and mules to pack a respectable kitchen into the wilderness. But a girl can fantasize about all the soapy possibilities!
