7/31/2020 Day 6 Pinedale to Ashton 214 miles(ish) wake up. walk into town for some breakfast. Heart and Soul Bakery and Cafe. another recommendation from the cabin lady. order up some oatmeal pancakes. which were bangin. the woman who was running the joint was pretty grumpy so i didnt bother asking for the wifi code. i still left a generous tip because who knows whats got her ticked. back to the log cabin back room. start loading the bike. the location of my room requires me to walk through the laundry room. run into a woman that works there. really nice person. asks about my trip. tells me her and her family work odd jobs for 8 months out of the year and then spend 4 months in full adventure mode. she shows me some pictures. looks like national geographic. she gives me her contact info and tells me if i need anything on the trail dont hesistate to call because her and her husband are all about helping people on their adventures. wow! hit the gas station. fuel up and grab some gators. barely 2 miles out of town i get back on dirt. headed toward union pass. eventually make it into the teton national forest. really enjoying the 1up front sprocket. i didnt gain much top end but now i can cruise at 50 and not feel like the engine is taking a beating. somewhere around 100 miles in i pop out on tarmac. instantly notice way more traffic than ive seen since colorado. ah i am getting close to the national parks. this should be fun. stop at the lava mountain lodge for some fuel and a snack. have one of these cold brew coffees for the first time. could only stomach 2/3 of it and then felt like i was having a heart attack for the next 2 hours. climb back on the horse and head for Togwotee pass. ill let these pics speak for themselves. yeah i stopped a lot. the dirt part of the pass was short. back on the highway for a few miles. see this sign. hmph. better turn on the gopro. never saw any. day 6 continued in next post.
