IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE ROAD INTO BURYANEK:
When you first turn onto the road it will look like you are driving into someone’s farm yard. It is ok, it is just that local rancher decided to store hay bales on both sides of the road.
The road winds down a ridge line to the shores of the Missouri. AND it runs through open range. It is a good road BUT you need to take it slow. There are several places where it crests a ridge AND then makes a sharp turn.
In addition, because it is open range you might find cattle and horse ON the road. If you are coming in after dark (9:30ish), go slow.
