As usual, everyone must have a GPS loaded with the route, also, tubes, irons and a good ability to fend for yourself if needed as we ride untethered. Of course we are there for each other, but there is no need to stop at every turn or eat each others dust. We would spread out and give ourselves the opportunity to feel "alone" when we want to.
So here we go. Day 1. Up onto the Continental Divide riding north towards Montana.

Headed toward Bannack Pass in Montana, Nearby is one of the best-preserved ghost towns in America

On the Divide

Redcorn soaking it up

One of scores of abandoned homesteads scattered throughout our route. This one is on Medicine Lodge Road

A still-intact stagecoach stop on the old Bannack Road between Corrine, UT and Bannack, MT, circa 1862

Here's the first example of what the CDR misses. The CDR route breaks off just ahead of this going northerly.
Deadmans Creek


We take a break and dry off. We also see our 1st Elk. A mere 100 yards off from here.

More later...........
