Indeed. Yesterday had set us up to dive right into the Missouri Breaks area. Didn't really know what to expect. From GoogleEarth it looked like a huge expanse of watershed, eroded fern-like gullies, but minimal vegetation. Dry, like badlands. Roads were either dirt, or labeled 4-WD. Nothing paved, no towns, fuel or structures for miles. I was intrigued. I'd never read about it in any ride report. It could be awesome, or it could totally suck. Game on. We started our morning with a bit of luxury -- a cafe breakfast. Friendly service by an overworked gal who was covering orders, kitchen, prep, cash register... essentially running the whole place. At 7am it had filled with local men jawing over a cups of coffee. We started on some straight gravel like how we ended yesterday -- but in the distance we started to get a sense that something was going on with the topography.
