... then 308 to Red Lodge. Red Lodge is a very pretty town! The “suburbs” had lovely scenery, green grass (sometimes scarce around here), and some trees. I would have loved to stay there a day or two, but we were mountain bound.
We spent about 30 minutes trying to find a campsite with a space flat enough to pitch the tipi. There were bear lockers provided at most of the campsites. I set up a line for the wool and microfiber we had washed in Cody. It was cold, but the air felt fairly dry. A big creek ran through below the campsites down into Emerald Lake. We were just below the hydroelectric reservoir of Mystic Lake. The hatch latch on the van broke. Jeremiah figured out how to open it with a tent peg.
