June 10, 2014 Ride from Denton to Grass Range.

That sign says "Judith" River Joy's sister's name.

This hungry guy crossed the road in front of me.  If I had been
driving a car instead, he would have gotten squished.
We rode from Denton to Grass Range today. Most of the time the weather was nice, but later in the day we had a downpour that got us while we were going over the Judith Mountains.

We passed through Lewistown today and had lunch there. We thought about staying there, but we wanted to cover more ground today, so we went on to Grass Range.

Grass Range is such a small town we were wondering about ou
This truck stop doesn't look like much, but its the people that really made it nice
r decision, but it turned out to be a good decision. In Grass Range we stayed in a campground by the only store in town, the Little Montana Truck Stop.  The people there were really nice and down to earth.  They were really interested in what we were doing. We were concerned about leaving our bikes out in the rain and the lady in the store said we could bring our bikes into the store for the night, so that's what we did.

We asked them about the hills ahead, but we found that unless they are cyclists they don't really pay attention to the hills. Someone will tell us that there aren't any hills ahead then we'll climb over 3000 feet that day. You can ask them where a good place to eat is, though. Joy asked someone in Lewistown and he told us about Ruby's.  Ruby's is a fast food hamburger place, but there burgers really are the best.  They use local Montana beef and they are big and tasty.
This is how the 'flat' Eastern Montana roads are.
