Previous : Day 2 – Wise River to Bannack State Campground (57 miles)

Brrrrrrrgh!  That describes last night.  It was freezing again when I woke and the tent had loads of condensation.   So glad I bought the extra sleeping bag liner and jacket!

Set off at 0800hrs for the ride to Lima.  As usual I was last away

Once again I just crawled along until I found my rhythm.   The views once again didn’t dissapoint.

Just before I reached the lunch spot I saw this.  Looks like the poor thing must have got caught in the fence.

I was having a great ride and the terrain suited me.  I was really surprised when I reached the lunch van to find I was the first person 🙂

The views just kept getting better and the second 40 miles was a flyer!  On the tri bars and the miles flew by.  82 miles in 5hrs 30mins and I had the best day so far.

I’ll let the pictures of the last 40 miles speak for themselves.

To say the place is vast is an understatement.   I rode on my own for pretty much the whole way down the most amazing trails and saw just a few people.  No towns, just nothingness!

Next : Day 4 – Lima to Henrys Lake (78 miles)
