Porter is now climbing a succession of passes that straddle the Continental Divide between Idaho and Montana–Bannock, Lemhi, Big Hole, Chief Joseph and many others. It’s rough going, lots of challenges with navigation and thunderstorms .
I drive up steep mountain roads to meet him for resupply.
This is a typical drive for me. I dropped off Porter at the top of Lemhi Pass, then drove a long way down on the dirt road that follows the Lewis and Clark Trail.
Sacajawea, who accompanied the Lewis and Clark Expedition as guide and interpreter, and her baby, Jean Baptiste, had a photo-op with Amber.
Over the course of his twenty-plus miles a day, Porter hikes above and below clouds and through wildflowers.
