Back on the pavement I make my way to Ennis For fuel, and water then on to Virgina City.







This was to be a brief visit as I spied another gravel short cut to Ruby Reservoir



This was a fun road about 10 miles up to the reservoir, then a long 50 mile stretch of gravel to Dillon Mt on Sweet Water Rd.





















Not much out here but some cows, old structures and some beautiful scenery!
You can make lots of time on this road, I was able to ride at 60 to 70 mph with little effort!
I made my way to Dillon as the sun was setting and grabbed a room.

In the last set of photos I posted, the area i was riding through skirts the Robb Creek WMA. An area so remote and devoid of any development that biologists found a few pairs of Whooping Cranes out there in the 90's.

These birds were thought to have been extinct from the lower 48

On towards Darby Mt.





On my way to Darby, I stopped at the Big Hole Battlefield.
This is where Chief Joseph, leader of the Nez Perce Indian tribe defended themselves against a attack from the U.S. Calvary in 1877.

Chief Joseph would later surrender to the
calvary a few months later north of here just 40 mile shy of the Canadian boarder were he would utter those famous words " From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more, forever! "



The hill side over looking the battlefield



The hill were the Calvary placed its mortors



The wooded area the soldiers crept through during their suprise attack during the wee hours of that morning





Where most of the battle took place





A monument to the battle





If your are a fan of the American west, this place is worth a visit!

More in a bit

I fished the river most of the day and evening with moderate success, then moved into Darby and set up the tent.
Just in time for the Loggers day parade to start.



























Nothing like the charm of a small western town to make you forget about the world for a while!

The whole town turned out for the parade, they even shut down 93 ( main st ) during the event

Shoshone Falls campground

Stayed at this campground with my nephew on a backpacking trip 3 years ago. Beautiful sunsets on opposing mountains, and really nice fishing at lake up the road. Only bad point was the locals brought their gennies and used this site for partying.

Back at the camp ground that was across the street from the Loggers Days grounds, more people started to arrive for the Mt1000.



These are some of the great folks I would get to know and ride with
L to R are Wendy, Migel, Ed, Jason, Cheryl and Dave (with back to us )

My KLR needed a different rear tire for this ride, and Inmate Shady Rascal was could enough to receive it for me. Thanks Steve!!

I rode up to his place just a few miles away and retrieved the new tire.
Spooning it on in camp





Now that this was done I could take some time to photograph some of the bikes showing up for the ride.

















There were some fine machines arriving for the ride!

The next morning arrives and its time for the Mt1000!
After a brief but memorable riders meeting conducted by Putts we grouped up and headed out!

Some how I got elected to lead our merry band of adventurer's
I'm not certain this was a good idea

With me at the start of the Mt1000 were;
John from Oregon riding a DL1000
Pete from Wyoming riding a R1200 GS
Tim from Wyoming riding a R1200 GS
Rick a.k.a. "BigDaddy" riding a Dr650



This is a rather poor group shot on Rye Creek Rd at the beginning of the ride.







Lots of this







I think this is Pete coming down the hill!







The group in front of a cool waterfall

Along Rock Creek Rd







A pic of me on a really cool swinging bridge!







Some pics of our camp site near the old ghost town of Garnett
About 160 mile the first day, it was a blast!!!

As the sun was setting over the trees at camp

The next morning we packed up and hit the trail. Some of the views on top of the road at Garnett





As we approached the pass just before the town of Lincoln



Here comes Rick & Tim!



Here is John on the mighty Dl1000!


Here is Pete on is beautiful R12GS



Up near the pass











This is down the off of the pass near Lincoln





From here we headed into Lincoln for lunch and fuel.
Montana will not dissapoint with the scenery or the riding

While taking these last few pics above and waiting for the guys to showed up I was informed that Pete had gone down on his R12GS!
He had a sore ankle, but he was fine.
The bike came out of this with only minor scuffs. Sorry no pics

Glen,
This is awesome! I've been thru a lot of the places you went, but I was in a toyota..
Looks much better with a bike!
I went to CO for 4 days and only took about a dozen pics. Your's are great.

Jeff
