Day 5 - Rest day at Fort Harrison, Montana

Day of rest at Fort Harrison (Helena), Montana

“We remained at Harrison all day Friday drying our traps and waiting for the storm to settle.
RESUME OF THE TRIP FROM FORT
MISSOULA TO FORT HARRISON

The distance covered in these four days was 146 1/2 miles, all but 30 of which was made on wet or muddy roads. The wheels are in as good condition as when they left Fort Missoula, although they have been over the roughest road in the country. The wheels were in six or eight inches of water most of the way down the main divide.
The trip from Helena east will be made in better time, as the roads are down grade.
