A large group of riders had already arrived at the hotel in Missoula, MT this morning. So far, I have met the Duerrs, Annamarie Mecca and her husband Rick, Wes and Corniela Garbee, Jim Kervick and a few others.
After breakfast, I took Jim to the bike shop to pick up his bike and then we went to the National Bison Range at Moiese, MT. It was just wonderful. We saw bison, elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, pronghorn atelope, some sort of grouse and a magpie.
Tonight we had a map meeting at 4:30 pm and then we went for a group dinner at 6:30 pm at MacKensie River Pizza Company.
Tomorrow is the first day of riding and we are off to Ronan, MT.
