Ride Across the USA: 6/24/10 -- Browning to Shelby, MT -- 60 mi, 856 total

John & Kathi Johnson from Wisconsin

I kept stopping to look back and this guy on a funny-looking bike shows up!

I looked back because this is what I was looking at ahead. Wouldn't you look back too?

This is the way to wake up ..... sun shining on the Montana Rockies. The last view we had of them as at Cut Bank. Today we had headwind, crosswind, mostly tailwind and about 1/2 and 1/2 hills vs. flat. Met John & Kathi Johnson from Wisconsin riding a tandem and on this particular they had ridden 2,000 miles. It is always fun to visit with fellow bikers alongside the road. Wish I had taken pictures of earlier riders we had met. Several of the towns along Hwy. 2 are celebrating centennials -- Rudyard and Hingham are a couple of them. This highway between ND and the Rockies was a trail for many: part of the Lewis and Clark, Nez Perce, Old Forts, Dinosaur and Great Northern plus the Cottonwood Country Byway.
