What is this "fall" of which y'all speak? No such thing down here in the gulf coast!
I would think you are right about the timing.
The problem in this whole general area is that July / August was way below normal rainfall. This leads to dehydrated leaves, and I am told that mutes the reds and oranges, leaving more yellow and brown that simply die quick and drop.
Time will tell where this leads in the next 3 weeks. Tamarack trees have not shifted to yellow yet, so there still may be a chance for a good color.
The ski area's are allready test runnin chairs and begging for employee's, old timers like me are unsure if we wanna work there this comin season since the new spike in local covid cases. Might just get a booster shot and ride sleds and blow snow instead !
Main concern is milking 3 more weeks outta roasted tires on the DR and gettin snow tires on all the cars.
Or much of the west this year due to the 2021 Megadrought.
Time to take the ac out of the window.
Search my bike backpack to find the winter gloves.
Put the thermal liner in the jacket.
Start wearing more than one pair of long underwear.
My cock is broken for too many layers.
I was past our ski slope last Saturday I think and they had a bunch of employees there working too. I remember you when I used to ski all the time when I was younger. The old hippie playing rock and roll at the chair lift I always liked that guy, even though he was usually cranky and intolerant of n00bs.
Ok, some DR pics from my local riding area...
I can only dream of beautiful places like that too ride...
Stop dreaming and come out for a visit next summer. We’ll be getting our second snow in the mountains this weekend so mountain riding is pretty much done for the year.
Second snow, ouch. No wonder your stream crossings are so deep.
Just little skiffs of snow this time of year, nothing over an inch or two. The bighorns get a lot of moisture all year long. The form of moisture varies. Back in mid August we had snow on the mountain and then a few days later it was back up in the 70’s on the mountain. (Upper 90’s down here at 5,600ft)
Well, compared to the mountains it’s the low country! The pics I posted were all taken between 8,000-10,000 on one of my favorite trails.
I'm in the "high country" in my party of the state when the elevation gets up to 300-400 feet...
So when you come up we’ll base camp in Sheridan (3,700ft) and make sure you drink plenty of water. Staying at elevation only a few hours at a time you shouldn’t have issue with altitude sickness.
Sounds good. I didn't do well when I went to Colorado. Base camp was at 9500'. Had an excursion up to almost 12k'. Sicker than a dog before midnight. Ended up marathon driving home on no sleep.
Life is good here, at least during the four months a year that’s not winter. Here’s more pics of my local riding, with and without a DR in the pics…
Yeah, that’s too high for base for someone not acclimated. When I take low country friends in the mountains we always base in Sheridan and spend less than six hours at elevation. So far nobody has had issues other than one guy with a slight headache, but it’s because he refused to drink water.
Wow! Think they'll let me in to come ride around ?
I dunno, but if they do then come on over and I’ll gladly show you around.
