Day 37

Hi Everyone, it’s Hailey and I’ll be writing day 37. I just returned from visiting Ryley in Dillon, Montana, a little town with a population of ~3000 that surprisingly had a Patagonia outlet store.
Sunday was another relaxing day. We went to a delicious greasy spoon diner called Spanky’s Garage for breakfast & then on to Elkhorn Hot Springs to give Ryley’s feet some much needed soaking.

The rest of the day was filled with playing cribbage, reading, eating burgers (dinner #1), hot wings (dinner #2) & prepping to head out to the trail Monday morning.

Monday morning, after Ryley and Chance mailed their bounce box forward, I dropped them off near the foothills of the Bitter Root mountains.

On my way back to the airport Monday morning, I was driving beside the Tobacco Root Mountains (love the mountain names in this part of Montana) and I had to take a picture. They were just stunning rising above the prairies.

Here is a link to Ryley’s latest pictures (and a few of Chance’s).

    Hey Ry,

    I have a new found respect for what you are doing. Cam and I hiked the Skyline Trail in Jasper over August long weekend. 44km and I asked Cam to buy me a new pair of feet for my birthday! Wow, keep on trucking.

    I love the posts.
