Day 53 Yellowstone to Ennis (June 30 th) 73 miles


We left the Madison Hotel at 7-30,West Yellowstone is a fine place but quite expensive because of the influx of tourists.We left town along a forested road and after 9 miles we turned along Hebgen lake ,site of the 1959 earthquake which hit 7.5 on thd Richter scale ,in one minute 80 million tons of rock plunged into the narrow canyon blocking the river and forming the lake,luckily for us everything has now been cleared away and the lake with the mountains behind it looks like we could be in Austria.Fly fishing is huge in this area,the river was full of people waist high in the water fly fishing,others were fishing from boats.11 miles from Ennis we stopped for lunch at Cameron and met up with fellow Trans amers Ben and Joanns who we had not seen since the rattlesnake killing incicent 4 weeks ago. Rod a motor cyclist from New Zealand who we had been chatting with yesterday also stopped to wish us luck for the rest of our trip.We had completed the 73 miles into Ennis in good time as most of the journey was either flat or down hill,but we know that tomorrows ride will be a different story.

    Paul McDonald Remember lads that you’ve wanted this for a long time… and soon enough you’ll be home and back to the normal way of life dreaming you were on your bikes again. Stop. Take a moment. Breathe. Look around and remember where you are and what you’re doing. You don’t need our support to follow your dream. You’re living. On yer bikes!

  6. I am pleased that you are now in the state of my birth, Montana!

    I remember that earthquake well for my dad and I were sleeping in a motel near by and woke up realizing our beds were rolling across the room! That experience was something you never forget.

    Take care about those bears!
