The ridgeline we will run soon...
Packet pickup and Squirrel Nut Butter stacking.
Just before 5am.
First stop at Digmore Mine with David Emerson.
Nice gates crisscross the fence...presuming to hop between states?
First of many amazing vistas from the Divide, looking into Idaho.
The trail continues upward in morning light.
Wild Buckwheat, little balls of yellow light the way.
The sun rises.
The single creek crossing of the entire race, this one flowing to Montana.
Almost to Goat Mountain AS amidst the lush Lupine flowers.
Descending just a little into Idaho side.
Can't complain about some easy running and shady cloud cover.
Clark's Nutcracker, many of them in these trees up here talking.
First snow patch of the day!
