The officer told us that if he had found the orange and we hadn't told him about it he would have assessed a $300 fine. Yikes! That's an expensive orange!

... on loose rocky terrain. The second was Priest Pass, a far easier climb. However, to make things even more difficult, we had made the decision not to go to Helena, the capital of Montana, even though it sounds like a cool place.
