Day 104: September 14: Lost Trail Hot Springs to Hamilton

Although the building we were sleeping in wasn't heated, it was still much warmer than our tents had been. We woke after a comfortable sleep, and I had breakfast leftovers for $3.50. Then we spent an hour or two in the hot springs (hot tub and pool).

We managed to get on the road around 10:30 or so. Our path was mostly downhill all the way to Missoula, but we didn't have enough time to make it that far. When we got to Hamilton, we called ahead to the next town, but couldn't find a cheap enough motel room. We stayed in Hamilton, and managed to use the phone for checking Barry and Pete's email, despite very poor connections.
