An early afternoon thunderstorm set-in. This would be a pattern for the next few days. We set off on the major portion of our journey, our next target being Muir Trail Ranch, over 100 miles to the north. We transitioned out of lodgepole pine forest, passed through the Bighorn Plateau, until we had to shelter in mid-afternoon for another thunderstorm.
