Man your mind starts to wander in the heat.
"Imagine walking across these plains staring at the east end of a westbound ox for months and months. Yuk. I want to be there now.
Then you pass Camp Disappointment. I can just hear the conversation.
"Merriweather theres a mountain out there".
"A mountain, there not supposed to be a mountain, It's supposed to be the coast. Whty the heck do you think we've been schlepping that damn boat all this way"
"Ah crap,(can I post that here?) I'm, disappointed, I wanted to go water skiing"
yeah, I know, guess you had to be there.
Anyway eventually you are rewarded with a view of the mountains and a really twisty road that leads to St. Mary with a 70 mph speed limit. Of course you know it is going to be good when the next sign after the speed limit sign is a 25 mph warning sign for s curves.
