Tuesday July 25, 2017 Continental Divide Montana
Lots of dusty travel
We broke camp and were on the road around nine this morning headed down this road. Dusty.
Garnet ghost town
We were taking a side trip to a ghost town called Garnet. We’ve stopped to check out a sign here on the way in.
The town turned out to be a bit of a walk so only Cheryl and I walked around the place.
The place is in pretty good shape at least what is left of it.
Back to the Divide
After that we headed back to find the Continental trail again.
We stopped here because the road we needed to take was blocked so we checked out the sign.
Fire closure so we can’t use this road and will have to detour.
Dennis says too bad as that was a nice scenic part of the road.
So we looked at the maps and drove around the fire and started looking for a camp spot for the night.
First time camped on the Divide
Dennis lead us up here. We are on the Continental Divide in this spot and camped up on these mountain tops.
Divide trail marker
I walked around a bit and found the Continental Divide trail markers close to our camp.
Mountain top camp spot on the Divide
This is our camp spot for the night, the first one that we are camped on the Divide.
This chopper flew by just before dark, likely returned to base from fighting fires all day.
Here’s the group sitting around after dinner.
That was our day. Did a lot of four wheeling today.
