Sun, 21 Aug, Great Falls, MT

Finally on the Missouri. Ride out of Augusta was really pretty. It was cool, clear blue sky forever, wide open grasslands…and so quiet. Saw a number of large rough-legged hawks, meadowlarks, etc. As I rode thru the morning there was more farming evident…cut hay, wheat, angus cattle. Made Grt Flls by 1:30 and am camping tonite. 54 mile day. Hard to capture the vastness with this Iphone camera-the pic is from the top of today’s only real hill looking back at Augusta and the Rockies in the background. Was reminded today that the coldest temp ever recorded in the USA was at Rogers Pass…70 below.

    Jim,

    Think you should eat more ice cream, drink more beer, add more lbs. It’s fun reading the blog.
