Route: Denton to Geraldine, MT
Saya’s quote of the day: “Ghosts are just like clouds. You can’t stab a cloud, and you can’t stab a ghost. But clouds don’t have faces or fangs, and they aren’t scary. So, really, the only way clouds and ghosts are the same is that you can’t stab them.”
We enjoyed dramatic views on today’s ride, which included an imposing butte off in the distance and a 2-mile descent down a winding 8% grade hill surrounded by looming cliffs. We took at a break at the bar in Square Butte, which will host “The 4th Annual Square Butte Redneck Olympics” tomorrow. Contests include the tire discus, gas siphoning contest and more. They even flew in Tom Guest, a musician from Philadelphia (and very cool guy). He gave us his latest CD entitled, “Parade of Fools.” Alas, we couldn’t stay for the Redneck Olympics. We continued on to Geraldine, MT, a small town with a bar/café and pool – Sho and Saya said that’s everything they need to be happy. It’s the little stuff…
I chatted for a while with Roger and Lita Buck, ranchers from Geraldine who also volunteer as firefighters traveling around the country putting out wildfires. Their stories were fascinating.
