We pushed out of Hamilton pretty early for no other reason than we had slept good and were ready to get going. I went into town the night before to the Bitteroot Brewery for a barley pop and food. Just so happens that they had the best blues/jazz band playing. I really had a fun time listening to them.
From Hamilton to Sula is pretty flat and ride thru the Bittereoot Valley, very wide and really pretty. Our goal was to get to a hot springs at the bade of Chief Joseph Pass. All was good until the last 5 miles when we started climbing. We didn’t expect that at the end of the day. It wasn’t for very long but really woke us up from a nice easy cruise.
Lost Trail Hot Springs was pretty old but we’ll kept and worth what we paid. Really relaxing and nice.
