Today-
Trappers Loop/East Canyon/Guardsman Pass

Pineview Res- Must be getting cold, not one person on the water this morning




The old train station in Morgan Utah- was at one point a fairly important waypoint for the transcontinental RR


East canyon- back on the Pony Express






Near the top






The 3 passes were spectacular today

Over Guardsmans Pass-

New pavement on the park city side






Lots of snow from last week (or so) toward Brighton. SOme of the dirt was pretty rutted/washboarded in sections- but little dust


Paraglider up over the Park City side (bet the view was spectacular)




SOme of the colors through the day were clearly a bit past their peak, but not this grove




Brighton area-


Great day for chasing canyons

Great pics as always Signal!

I was I was up on the Brighton side of the pass yesterday. I was going to go up and over to Midway, but there are sections of the road, mainly in the shadows , covered in a couple inches of ice. Not snow, ice. Ice and I have not gotten along in the past, so I went back down big cotton wood canyon.

BEautiful up there
Actually saw/encountered a few ice patches from freeze/melt on the brighton side today on the pavement (north side shadows)- most were in the other (uphill) lane, but the first one really took me by surprise. Looked like standing water until I got close.
Some long shadows in the pines, I imagine that ice is there for the duration at this point.

Yea, that's what I was thinking. Time to head out to the west desert I guess.

Summer did go very quickly. Funny, but even with the snow up high, I never really considered there may be ICE on the road (dumb). Thought process changed fast.

true enough- may be the time for a big lap around the giant salty drainage pond (though would be a dawn to dusk thing now with the short days)

Ran away this weekend, as I was "childless"- managed to evade most of the crowds (deer hunt, UEA break)...

Devils Slide was well lit


For depth-


Strawberry Res


Turned right in Duchsene, Ashley Forest- somewhere near the summit







From Price, ran down Hwy 10 to Castle Dale- Lunch at "Big Mommas Burgers", was outstanding. Fries were thick cut and prefect ....Glad to give them my 6 bucks. Stopped at the local visitors center/dino museum for checking road contitions. Memorials outside:


Just north of Castle Dale is the San Juan access road(s) that cut down the center of the San Rafael swell (no ninja turtle jokes here)


High speed dirt (for me anyway) for a few miles before you decend into the river bottoms, red cliffs-


Got pretty down lower
