[Cdt-l] Black Range resupply

Highway 59 is paved, but sees much less traffic than Hwy 12 into Reserve. You might encounter hunters, or forest service / firefighting personnel out of Beaverhead. In other words, good chances for a ride when they arise. I believe a GET'er or two successfully managed to hitch into Winston after a long wait. Best to have a little extra food on hand, just in case. The ride back might be a little less challenging, as Hwy 52 sees some rancher traffic out of Dusty. 

Another option would be to walk into Chloride (and/or Winston) via FR 226 near Lookout Mountain. The CDT follows the road for a mile (heading the wrong way for nobos); leave the trail where it first joins the road and head east, 12 or 13 miles into town. It's a long descent and return climb but is scenic. You might get lucky with the ATV traffic, especially on weekends.

Farther north, can anyone testify to hitching into Winston via 59/52?
Is there even less traffic on 59 than on the road to Reserve?
