Butte today - now I'm REALLY back in Montana! "Only" 89 miles today but 1 big climb + 1 very hard climb + 1 absolutely impossible climb (imagine pushing a loaded bike straight up Heep Steep, only twice as long).
Anyway - made it to Butte and got s great bike check-up from Rob Leipheimer at the Outdoorsman. Thanks Rob!
Helens tomorrow - also rumored to be a tough day.
