Woke up and had a yummy breakfast of 7 grain oatmeal with raisins, and sugar and milk and headed on the road around 7. Luckily the pass was first thing in the morning, so I was up and over it by 9:30. While I was making my way to the overpass where I was told the sign was that said you were crossing the divide, I saw two billboards on the other side of the barbwire fence and read one that said "Crossing the divide". Then I saw that is was the old rail road tracks and I thought that would be the perfect place to take pictures! So I climbed over the fence and set up my camera to take some photos, and sat down under a tree to take a little break.
That was about the extent of my excitement for the day. I spent the rest of the afternoon just focusing on getting to Whitehall before the rain hit.
In Whitehall, my next hosts, Chuck and Debbie, came to get me and take me back to their home up the road. They live on a few acres, and own 40 acres across the street where a local rancher runs his cattle. For dinner we had hamburgers with that beef and corn on the cob. Debbie showed me where I would be staying for the next two nights. It was a super cute cabin with a sleeping loft.
I was pretty tired, but I spent some time in the hot tub they had, and drank a beer with them before I finally went to bed. I have another BIG day tomorrow, 32 miles and a canyon to walk out of.
