Cycling Along The Spectacular Tetons

Wednesday 7-7 day 64 - 43 miles 3021 total miles. Colter Bay to Jackson. This was the coldest morning of the trip. There was frost on the table and the shorts James had hung out to dry were stiff. The sun arose and warmed everything up. Sunny day, little wind, mostly downhill ride into Jackson and drop dead gorgeous views of the Tetons made this the best day I have had on a bike so far! We now have a layover day in Jackson Wyoming.

Tuesday 7-6 day 63 - 65 miles, 2978 total miles. Dubois to Colter Bay over Towgotee Pass. There is construction on top of the pass that kept traffic to one lane. The construction people actually loaded our bikes up into pickups and drove us 4 miles up and 4 miles down to avoid traffic delays. I was a little disappointed in not being able to cycle over the top, but did save time and leg. There was a great view of the Teton Range on the downside of the pass.

Snake River Pale Ale another local beer that must be sampled.

Monday 7-5 day 62 - 80 miles, 2913 total miles. Lander to Dubois, 50 miles of nice ride to Crowheart, then 30 miles of the worst headwinds of the trip - tough day! I guess if you have the Wind River Mountains on the right of you and the Wind river on the left, you should expect wind.

These guys were Strutting their stuff along the road 5 miles out of Lander. Where they came from and why they were strutting in mid July is a complete mystery to me, but there they are.
