Bump for the boy , hey buddy
Don't let the Frogs drag you down
Frogs ain't even worth it.
Stupid long way away, but looking at a UTBDR trip summer 15. A boy's gotta dream.
Buy you a beer?
Would love to meet and greet somewhere. Also got an awsome futon that has had some inmate use-
My one of my oldest adventures, my 21 YO son, is in france doing some cullinary arts, chef something-or-other training, and has had a tough go lately- he's the only 'merican stuck in a ski village full of snobby sorts
Nice pics Signal!
So where's the overlook?
Is French culinary like Jacques in ze box :)
He'd like some in-n-out burger action (actually, he's craving mexican )
The last overlook is above Bear Lake with wife and son, looking south
Other views, east
down the road
To garden city, and this
I was there in Sept, It was raining so hard I couldn't see the lake from the Pass.
No reason to stop at a scenic pullout when you can't see the scenery
Nice additional pictures.
Full tank of gas,
Ran out to Antelope Island
The 4-5 mile causeway out
Looking back to the east, Layton/Clearfield area
On top of one of the rises- looking north down at the causeway
The "frontage" road along the buffalo winter pen
A few of the females up on the hill
Mr Salty considered the options
A few pronghorn antelope kept their distance
SOme of larger guys-
Thanks for playing
FWIW- no Pepsi at the visitors center...
Nice to see you out and about again. Can't wait to see what you find out there. I took a ride out to Ophir on Sunday it was nice.
Ophir- My dad bought an old '29 model A from a guy named Arley Fitzwater out there 'circa 1981
SOme good trails and open roads out there (watch for old metal on the trails)
Man I am so anxious to get out. My road is still snowpacked but starting to show some patches of gravel so maybe next weekend! -al
How high are you ?
So, so high.
Great to see the season starting off well! Antelope Island = Sweet!! :
Cool that it's so close to town.
I'm at 7700ft. My road is more groomed than it is plowed LOL. I puttered/paddled around in the mashed potatoes and mud on the 250 a little bit yesterday. More snow expected Wed/Thu.
The weather in the city lately has me seriously jonesing for a ride. Al
great thread, lots of inspiration here!
Antelope island is a nice treasure, fairly well kept (but stinks to high heaven whene the brine shrimp are in their prime)
8K is up there, but should burn off soon- I'm glad I chose a home with a south facing driveway
I'm kinda hoping for some more snow (sorry man), several below average years have left us too dry-
Honest thanks- nice to have you along
When staying in Heber City a few summer's back, I asked our hotel where can I find a good burger, they pointed me to the local bowling center. Holiday Lanes did not disappoint on the burger and shake.
Does the place still exist, and have you had a chance to check it out?
Thanks for a great thread Signal!
Wow, blast from the past
I believe it is still in operation, but havent been there in several years
There is another excellent burger place in heber, on main, east side of teh street, has a "train theme"-
may have to go visit
I'm near Heber and I've never eaten at the bowling alley. Guess I'll have to now.
Chick's is a popular spot. Lots of bikes parked in front on weekends. It's your basic greasy spoon diner. They have these huge deep-fried things they call scones but are more like sopapillas. Sidetrack cafe is interesting with some good food (try the chili verde) and a patio. The owner might sit down at your table and talk your ear off if she's not too busy. If not the dog will keep you company.
One of my standard afternoon rides is to go have pie and coffee in Hanna, over wolf creek pass. There are several fun dirty ways to get there in the summer, too.
