Helena to Butte
Trail Score: 6/9
I forgot that some of my maps n boxes overlap and sent home the first map for MacDonald Pass. I just used my GPS until I got on the map so it worked out ok. Need to pay attention to that and to verify that I have enough batteries before I leave town each week.
I walked out of nice Helena about 8:00 a.m. and hit why 12 walking west towards the pass. After about two hours I got a ride from Lance a builder who was going to Simi I to spend the day fishing. He gave MA a ride to within 5 miles of the pass.
I kept walking an hitching and after but a slow Mike Ferrell picked me up. He was on his way to a day of fishing also. I got out at the pass and started in. Things were great until the trail entered an area where it was not being maintained. That was hard hiking. Climbed up to some hog mrafows. Pretty neat. Arrived at Fenn if Gulch where a nice creek is beside the road. I had been on a dirt road for last little bit. Thanks to Lance and Ferrell for the rides.
Too tired for dinner n not really hungry. Hint to new hikers cliff Bars sure loose their appeal -LIKE REAL QUICK! (Except for the "white chocolate n Macadamia Nut"! ) Drank a lot of water n hit the sack. This creek was first water other then a trickle I found 10 minutes earlier. So I needed it. I had left Helena with a two liter camel back n had slowly sipped from it all day. Not enough in the heat.
