Butte, Mt. At night from cell phone camera

Rain delayed departure from Butte 'Vortex'

I was planning to leave this morning, preferably after the showers that were forecast. But the rain did not come until late morning, and into early afternoon. I had Gary the uber driver taking me a backup to the i- 90. Good cell phone reception for the first 11 miles. Gary told me that mass and Ranger didn't leave till this morning so I'm probably about a half day behind them. Worm wood is an easy 2 or even 3 days ahead of me. And sparklers alas, is now off the trail.

Butte is a large City, with two Safeway's a Walmart superstore, and is somewhat spread out. Also there are two post offices, so you have to be careful to go to the right one to pick up your package.

It was a warm couple days up until today and I reluctantly switched over to my 15 degree bag, but it was a good decision because it is cold tonight on the mountains.
