I have been camping up on divide outside the XG @ a CDT TH. All by myself. Not as cold this morning.
Today I input the last of the $ info into IRS form. Tedious would have liked to have had a number pad.
Drove back into town and parked on Last Gulch road. Trails take off right from historical downtown. Up Grizzly to Wakina, stairway to heaven, Grizzly rd to double track up mini ridge then back down the actual ST, down Grizzly, back up Wakina to climb back up ridge then down a new piece traversing descending w/ exposure, to a new being built corkscrewing gully ride, finally down grizzly to van. 2900′ in 16 miles. Sure like my bike making downhills sweet.
Back @ van. 2 riders stopped to visit..
I drove back thru edge of town and west to Broadmore health club for a shower. A hot spring is plumbed into pools. I soaked.
I drove back into town to Blackfoot tap room for good beer.
I drove back to pass. Brief sprinkles fell, hardly a tease. Class 1 fire restrictions: fires only in dev eloped campgrounds in fire pits.
I will ride here again tomorrow. OK place to hang and out of smoke. farmers’ market tomorrow.
