With not much

daylight to spare, we pulled into Clover Meadows.



Threw down our tents, and started cooking some grub. There was a campfire ban . But we did our best to make due.

Bob's bike had been sputtering a bit and losing power,



Not sure what the final diagnosis was?

Stats for Day 1

A late start, and a late finish...





and a decent climb! My lungs were still functioning at sea level.



.GPX track for M10 Day 1 available here.

[I'm gonna need a day or two to process Day 2 photos... y'all are invited to fill in the blanks on Day 1]

See the two riders ahead of me?



I wouldn't have traded that light for anything.





Don't get those kind of views in NYC do ya???

Nice!

The pictures make me really sorry I missed the Gravelly Range. Beautiful and maybe even big bike friendly!

Campfire Substitute

Dr. Rock anticipated us not being able to build a campfire at all in Montana---and parts of Wyoming.
This was a serious thing----and we never did build one where we weren't suppose to.

So------this is just off the charts.
I give you---------Dr.Rocks "Campfire Substitute".................you can feel the heat.
We enjoyed this every night. The light isn't very good in this video---but it was getting dark.

No Campfire Smoke?

A wee dram of "Peat Monster" would have completed the picture as it is akin to "drinking" a campfire.
Great Pix...Brilliant virtual campfire.

I'm headin' out

I was wanting to continue contributing to this ride report but have been gettin' itchy to ride.
I will head out in the morning if not today. So-------you all carry on without me.
Where am I going- ?????--------I don't know. But it's nice out--the leaves are turning and I've got to see every one of them.

And I'll leave you with this pic of us breaking camp at Clover Meadows.
