Day 13 – CEDAR CREEK CAMPGROUND TO HOLLAND LAKE 47 miles

No rain today though we did wake up to tents heavy with condensation. The ride description seemed like the day would be a easy day on well maintained gravel roads but we did climb 2.5k feet. All those rollers add up to something. We continued on a trail underneath old growth forest and passed many streams. Montana seems like one big watershed and we are curios where all the water goes.

Along the way we met a very nice couple from Utah traveling gravel roads via their Mitsubishi Fuso, an overland vehicle which we have considered for our “Go Mobile”. They were trail angels and handed out granola bars to everyone. We lingered on discussing overland vehicles and we’re excited to kindred spirits.

The trail was rough and non maintained in places where the grass and weeds are slowly taking over roads closed to vehicle traffic. We rode cautious of bears talking and singing to let the Bears know that we are around.

Holland Lake our destination is a beautiful high mountain lake surrounded on one side with mountains. The Holland Lake Lodge is a picturesque place to stay with a hotel and dinning. We camped with ACA since all campgrounds were full. 13 campers and 12 tents on a large group camping spot. Other Divide riders joined us later in the night as we all try to share and support each other on the ride.
