2021 Snarl Par-Tay Day 11 – A Cool Day along the Western Hi-Line

Today’s route is simple: US2 east. The scenery is far from simple: through the foothills to the continental divide at Glacier National Park to the endless grain fields of northern Montana.

An Eventful Day in Idaho

The plan was simple: get a 9-10am start and ride the remote ID28 route up to Salmon, ID and up US93 to Lolo and then west on US12 through Lolo Pass and on to Orofino, ID. If I had known everything that was going to happen today, I may have stayed in bed. Continue reading An Eventful Day in Idaho
