Day 11: Columbus, MT to Powell, WY

We rolled through southwest Montana today and into Wyoming. Wyoming is much less forested than Montana but, thanks to irrigation, there are a lot of ranches and some farms. We saw corn for the first time and lots of baled hay. Lunch was just over the Wyoming border (yay, new state!). We’re traveling mostly southeast now after an initial northeast start. In the next few days we’ll start heading due east. I’m now riding in a consistent group of five people out of a total of 22 riders. Today was a tough ride and tomorrow will be even tougher, we go over the Bighorns. But I felt pretty good today! Tomorrow will be tough for everyone. Today’s ride was 110 miles with 5,300 ft of climbing.
