Yeah, there still are a lot of the rainbows.  Apparently many came up from
Dillon to Butte for the Montana Folk Festival this past weekend.  I've
passed more than a few hitch hikers on the side of the road -- you just
can't stop for them all.  I'm always happy to help a hiker though.  I live
in Butte, and I'll pick up at Homestake pass (I-90), Pipestone Pass (US-2),
or at the I-15 crossing south of Butte if you contact me via the CDT-L.
 It's no trouble... all are about a 10-15 min drive.
