We camped in St. Mary and then yesterday enjoyed huge tailwinds into Valier where we camped again.
Today we made it to Great Falls and are in a hotel doing laundry and getting ourselves clean. You will note from the mileage at the top of the page that today was our record - 87 miles. The last part was tough, with a strong headwind. But we made it. Our average in the mountains has been over 60 miles. Hopefully, that will start increasing now that we are in the plains.
One final story: yesterday, as we were descending from Divide Mountain, we saw a herd of wild stallions at the side of the road. Much of the land around here is open range, so it is not unusual to see a few cows grazing at the side of the highway. But this was a herd of 20 - 30 horses. They were very skittish as the bikes went past but did not come into the road. Unfortunately, I was doing about 25 mph downhill at the time and so did not get a photo.
The next few days are more of the same - rolling plains, big skies, sunshine and ever changing winds. Now all we need to see is a tatanka :-)
