Beautiful 42 mile ride from Shelby to Chester, Montana. Lovely town of 700 people with well-kept lawns and streets. 70 degrees and sunny with a tailwind on the ride today. Not a tree in sight on this side of the Continental Divide. My dad is loving bird-watching and reading while he waits along the road every ten miles for us to catch up. Today is laundry day. Olfactory relief. We are one day ahead of schedule, so we looked at the maps and decided to break up the 84 mile day in North Dakota into two days. We will be back on the regular schedule by Turtle River State Park, ND. Kids are happy and continue to notice things that we take for granted: clouds, wind in tall grass, roadkill.
We think of home often and appreciate your comments to us. xxoo, Alison
