Snow King Wyoming
So I was looking for another ride close to Wilson where we were staying. It was another horrid night of sleep but ambition all time. The plan was to check out put put and go form there. Being a green trail I was lookingforward to start with some easy flow. Well it turns out it had alot more climbing than I expected and totally not a blue as far as elevation goes, either way it was amazing. Rain overnight had the luch aspen groves and vegetation drippping in beauty, my feet and bike as well. The trails were so overgrown and I could care less. After alot more work than expected, put put was complete. Then it was onto Hagen for a nice pine descent by the river. I still have not found my legs this trip, extremely frustrating! I noticed this scenery in Wyoming is almost identical to Utah alpine. I am so happy to be riding in the alpine, when I am in spanish fork it's not that easy to access it nearby and find time to ride it. So I had plans to head up the moutain after Hagen and that wqas via ferrins. Maybe the narrowest, prettiest cozy pine climb of all time. I was still absolutely struggling to pedal uphill, I felt like I had 10% endurance, it was just nowhere to be found. I kept on climbing and eventually reached a saddle and then saw a ridge in front of me that I very much wanted to ride named skyline. I was out of time but I proceeded to skyline anyway. Thick meadows and vast views awaited me, it was stunning to say the least. Still alot of work up there, way more than expected walking, but with these surroundings who cares. Beat and anxious, all tht work finally paid off on a fast long descent that ended back at the trails earlier. I took the road which was lame but fast, by the time I reached the car I was cooked. Farewell Wyoming, what a treat!
