Day 54 Ennis to Dillon 72 miles


Today started with a tough 10 mile 7% climb out of Ennis,once at the top we descended into Virginia City,the site of the Montana gold rush which took place from 1863 to 1865.There are still 237 of the original buildings remaining ,many are still in use , a lot selling antiques.We met Dick and his wife Barbara outside the ice cream shop,he may be able to get us on the local radio station.From there it was onto Navada City where we had some strawberry pie.The terrain was very green and lush,completely different from Wyoming or Kansas ,but we were still surrounded by mountains,the smell of fresh cut hay was very noticeable..15 miles from Dillon we saw the famous Beaverhead Rock a well known landmark in local history.We finally arrived in Dillon a bit tired because of the 90 + temperatures.Tomorrow we will have to face the biggest mosquito location in this state and have to contend with over 50,000 hippies descending on a small town for a Rainbow festival.Forgot to mention yesterday that we have now passed the 3,000 mile marker..Please keep your comments coming , we love to hear from you.
