Made it our of the chaos of Yellowstone and into Montana, which is beautiful. We had a great ride with a tailwind for most of the way. The only place we didn't have a tailwind was through the valley which had the Madison river in. This feeds what is known as Earthquake Lake. About 50 years ago a huge slide off the mountain caused the valley to flood. The river went from being narrow to wide, as you can see in the photo with the trees sticking out the water. Unfortunately there were campsites next to the river and people were buried alive under the rock and washed away in the flooding. You can still see where the landslide happened in the photo.
Glen had stopped at the visitor centre for quake lake, as he whizzed past me, he shouted something that sounded a lot like "I have beers, don't let yours get warm", that got us all pedalling that little bit faster to the campsite!
Campsite for tonight is down by the Palisades in the middle of nowhere. We'd all set up our tents before we realised that the water was turned off. (the maps usually say when a campsite has no water) luckily Jim had iodine tablets and a filter so it was filtered river water for us tonight.
