The feeling of pedaling across the parking lot towards the single track was eruphoric. After all the planning I finally got to hit the trail. Left Chief Joseph Pass and rode nearly 18 miles to Schultz Creek. Smokey skies from the wild fires near Missoula. Less tired than expected. Mellow climbing but know we will feel it later. Final section up to Schultz Saddle on the road due to unrideable trail caused by blow downs.
