This is Elizabeth who is biking from Maine to Seattle. She is smiling because of the tailwind and wanted to get back on the road asap.
The more I ride in Montana the more I get a better understanding of how big a tragedy the coming of the white man was for the native Americans. I am not sure if much or any of it could have been prevented but this was a sad story and it still continues in large part today.
I also thought a lot about this today as I rode and will write more on the topic later on.
This is Dan(?) and Sam also heading east today , smiling away. They had biked with Elizabeth for several days along the way, who I had seen about an hour before.
