Packed up everything and got food ready for shipping (which Lauren will be doing for me tomorrow). We went to breakfast at Steve’s, a very busy Helena restaurant. Then we lazed around for awhile as Chance had more Internet stuff to do.
I ran into ET downtown, who was headed out of town sometime today too. He said there are a bunch of hikers a day behind him.
In the end we got our arms twisted into staying for family dinner (ribs) and then finally dragged ourselves away at 8:30pm. Andrew drove us to the trail and we hiked into dusk, quickly finding a quiet spot for the night.
