Great divide 1B: disregard Huckleberry Pass closure

Huckleberry Pass is signed on both sides as closed. It is OPEN for cyclists. They're fixing the bridge at Yukon Creek but the creek is easy to get across if no workers are there, and they'll help you if they are ther.

So, to review: you can get through Huckleberry Pass south of Ovando, but the road closure on Cottonwood Lakes road NORTH of Ovando is real and you should take the detour.

I'm in Helena. Tex, the Cyclist's Only camping place at the bottom of the unnamed pass just south of Lincoln is everything you could possibly want, and more. Don't miss it! (You must call ahead.) Plus, there's nowhere else to camp in that area.

Came through cottonwood lakes road on Sunday July 19, 2015. No work being done on Sunday so ok to go through. Looks like replacing small culvert. Sign said work should be done by August 2.
