5 a.m. Rapid Rover pickup in Medford.  Rapid Rover to PHL.  PHL to DEN.  Deplane onto the tarmac – that’s fine with me, I get to breathe in some of that mile-high air!  The first hike of my trip is through Denver International to the regional terminals.  It’s a HUGE airport.  DEN to BZN.  I see fresh snow in the Bridgers as we make final approach.  T-Rex greets me again as I wait for my bag to circle around on the carousel.  When I finally step outside, the air smells like wet snow.  I find my rental SUV and get organized for the 5 hour drive up to Whitefish.  A long travel day, but who cares, I’m back in Montana.


more from Montana to come…
