Fatty Creek to Holland Lake Lodge
Due to the detour last night, I had to rejoin the GDMBR through Cold Creek Road and this shortened the day to a rolling 25 miles...without any bears. The route followed forest roads, all the way to HLL, which is barely off the actually Great Divide route. I arrived in Holland Lake with time to spare and set out on a hike to the Holland Lake Falls (pictured below) along with a spectacular view off the lake and back-dropped by the Rockies. Holland Lake Lodge had recently hosted 17 of the cyclists on the GDMBR. It was a forest service campsite and provided a decent nights sleep. A quick nip out for a bite to eat with Dad, provided rocky mountain oysters (with a side of ranch) and a "teddy bear" 8oz piece of protein.
