South of Pie Town, Ross Burrage found this shelter / water / resupply point which a rancher has built for bikers and hikers:


So, why is Pie Town so named? The story goes that in the 19th century there was a hotel that made pies, and placed signs at all the cross roads within a reasonable riding distance saying "PIE". Eventually, the actual name of the town was forgotten as eveyone just simply called it Pie Town.

Janie Hayes has a blog up on her experience on the TD this year: http://jimmyandjanie.com/2019/07/06/a-romance-and-a-heartbreak-on-the-tour-divide/?fbclid=IwAR0GqUjUwpKmR8Un3U2qyU1DOfxzXg4obMbgMJydp--1G9cr1spS79cHU-g
