[cdt-l] Stopping Recommendation in MT



Setting the divide aside (forgive me) I was simply looking a map of the area
around Yellowstone NP and ID/MT and drawing straight lines.  If one could
head directly north from Old Faithful to the NW corner of the park and then
hike NW through the Gallatin NF towards Butte it would cut off a few miles.
I'm not sure if anyone actually has followed such a route, but it seems like
a possiblity.
