It was a chilly 42 degrees outside the coffee shop in Dillon this morning. The first 150 miles or so was cool, occasionally dipping in and out of mist.
By the time I got to Missoula, it had warmed all the way up to 67 degrees again, so I stopped for some more coffee at a Starbucks.
I stopped for the night at a little motel/restaurant about 30 miles west of Misoulla called the River's Edge, right next to the Clark fork. The back door of my room was just 15 feet from the river.
Montana bars usually feature lots of dead animals. The food was also made from dead animals, but it was excellent.
