rain 55 °F
View Russ’s Big Adventure on Weimerrv's travel map.

The heavens opened and it rained all day til 7pm and cold to boot. I rode about 360 miles and they were hard miles, they required intense concentration and suffering car wash-like blowing water from trucks!

I travelled through the Tobacco Root Mountains today, I wish I could have seen more of them but the cloud ceiling was very low. I crossed the Continental divide coming west to east this time. The pass over the divide was very pretty. I crossed the Madison river several times and rode beside it for miles....stunning and lots of fisherman out even in the rain.

I stopped at a cute little town called Ennis for lunch....great burger and waffle fries. I had some nice conversation with the waitress and other patrons as we discussed how we got to Ennis.

Rode through a bit of Idaho and the rain let up so I could get a few pictures and it allowed me to get the Montana sign I missed yesterday.

I arrived in West Yellowstone about 4pm. I checked in and the proprietor gave me the lay of the land for the park and a recommendation for dinner. After drying my stuff out - my jacket was completely soaked, I rode to dinner, great hot turkey sandwich and cherry pie for desert. The pie was not as good as Beth’s but it tasted great on a cold rainy day. The rain had stopped by then so I walked around town taking some pictures and rode to the park entrance to pre-pay for tomorrow. I was warned to get there early because the line really builds in the morning even though the park is always open.

Should get some good pictures at the park tomorrow then on to Cody.
