In my continuing quest to identify convenient accommodations that fit the spirit of Heart of the West travel, I've come upon Pinedale, Wyoming's, historic Log Cabin Motel. It's just a block or two from the heart of this authentic little town at the foot of the Wind River Mountains. The owners assure me they're moto-friendly, and know the appeal of being able to park one's bike right outside their charming little cabins. (photos below are provided by Log Cabin Motel) Pinedale is an important stop along the route, either before or after (depending on whether one travels clockwise or CCW) one braves the long and remote stretches of Oregon Trail that are part of the H.o.W. experience. Travelers often prefer Pinedale -- where ranchers, energy workers, hikers, climbers and ADV travelers find a comfortable cultural mix -- to more famous Jackson, the pricey tourism-driven community that H.o.W. bypasses. As conditions clear up "out there," I shall continue exploring further opportunities for a comfortable night amid authentic American West settings. And as always, I do not receive any form of compensation, discounts, etc. for mentioning these establishments.
