|I never get tired of seeing this beautiful view coming over the Teton pass|
No worries, mate! There's lots of residential development around, a golf course, a boutique shopping mall, and fields across the street and it was middle of the afternoon, so I wasn't worried. There are so many "BE BEAR AWARE" signs around, it's a wonder that you don't see any bears. We haven't seen them in the national parks, we haven't seen them in the national forests, and I sure didn't see any on the bike trail today. That doesn't mean they aren't around, I know, I know....
There was a big bike race today and so the highway going into Jackson Hole was clogged with cars and and "sag wagons" (the extra bikes/parts/supply vans that follow the race and the riders). It was interesting to see the pace--I was going about 14 m.p.h. on the bike path and they were zipping by twice as fast in their colorful racing bike outfits and expensive bikes. Some of them had colorful matching shoes to match their outfits. Too chic! Some were in teams, some were in tandems, and some were struggling behind the pack. Not sure how long the bike race was, but it was still cool to see so many participating!
You can see all kinds of things on this trail...maybe wildlife, maybe not! Maybe interesting things to look at?--you bet! How about this garage mural?
Great ride today, fantastic view of the Tetons....Hopefully, Eldo will get to see the trail, too! (He's off watching the close score and the last few minutes of the Notre Dame game or he'd have a comment, lol!) He's a good sport, I bet I can get him out on the trail with a reward at the end...like a Kokanee beer at the local tavern in downtown Jackson Hole)....See you later! Sparky and Eldo
