Sept. 24, 2006
 Helena, Montana to Missoula, Montana via Flesher Pass
ok

Our tour does not go to Lemhi Pass, as L&C did, but Flesher Pass, although quite different, has a similar feel to it. In the words of Meriwether Lewis: "...we proceeded on to the top of the dividing ridge from which I discovered immence ranges of high mountains still to the West of us with their tops partially covered with snow."

One of the neat things about Elderhostel is the new friends we make. Lambkins Restaurant in Lincoln, MT gave us a great lunch that produced great conversation.
