Camped On the Continental Divide Montana

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.dust

 

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.signs

 

The town turned out to be a bit of a walk so only Cheryl and I walked around the place.cheryl

 

The place is in pretty good shape at least what is left of it.garnet

 

Back to the Divide

After that we headed back to find the Continental trail again.ranch

 

Roads blocked

We stopped here because the road we needed to take was blocked so we checked out the sign.vans

 

Fire closure so we can’t use this road and will have to detour.fireclosure

 

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.roadout
