On the GDBMR and read an article on this attack in the Hungry Horse News. Hopefully this is the last we hear for a while of deadly Interactions with wildlife.

 The link is to an earlier article in the Interlake News

Not certain where this should be posted. I am currently in Ovando. Due to the  death in their town, the local church has opened up their basement to all cyclists. It is quite a nice space and clean and cool. There is no donation box yet, but I recommend those who use the facilities leave a donation on the kitchen counter.

(Not large enough for big groups.)  Big groups have recently been accommodated at the school gym.

A reminder that showers are available for about $10 at the Ovando Inn.

One should count on breakfast or lunch at The Stray Bullet.

A reminder that the Blackfoot Angler cannot only get you the right fly, but can help with some minor bike repairs.

Nice of you to pass along the information. And donations are an excellent idea.  When I did the NT the senior center in Oxford Junction, IA offered to let us spend the night in air conditioned bliss on a scorching day.  We left a donation that matched our average daily camping budget.
