Today we had a beautiful ride from Philipsburg to Butte. It was a lighter 55 mile day with a tough climb at the beginning and some rolling hills towards the end. We climbed a mountain pass up to a beautiful alpine lake surrounded by cabins with incredible views of the Rocky Mountains. We cruised along the glass-like lake until we reached the peak. We then had a lengthy and fun descent into the town of anaconda. From there we rode along backroads and bike paths into butte where we had great views of the mine and mountains surrounding the town. We finished off the day by having a pizza dinner from an anonymous sponsor.
