This time around I almost didn’t make it to Oberlin Bend, where the plows were parked: one of my chain links broke just below Haystack Butte. I was looking at the prospect of limping my trusted Tourmallet back, not worried about the downhill but I had parked way back at Lake McDonald Lodge 🙁
As it happens first guy I asked for a chain breaker had one along and the ride and day was saved! Thank you Mike!
Besides bumping into friends I saw my share of flowers, sheep and a marmot.
