Wyoming

Approaching the east side of the Tetons
Morning shadows along the Rockefeller Memorial Parkway
Western view of the Tetons
All the sun gear is on…
…and the rear drying rack is full.
Pedaled up most of this…
…and the downhill reward was underwhelming…neither long enough or steep enough. Phhfft.
Let’s start another climb up to Union Pass
This section was brutally tough — 100 yards of huff and puff and pushing the bike up two feet at a time…
…and this was the payoff. Lovely high ranch land plateau at 9000ft..
…with more incline.
And finally descending into Pinedale a day later. “All the civilization you need.”
Artist mural at the Pinedale Post Office, where I picked up a resupply box.
Then cycled down to…
…Atlantic City. Population: “about 57”.
Then it was time to cross the Great Divide Basin, along a 96 mile route with little water. So I camped at the…
…Diagnus Well for the first night to load up on water…
…and added to the roadside cairns for easier spotting from the road.
These are old wagon tracks through the basin…
…that sometimes turn into roads…
…and drift into hillside ridgelines…
…sometimes accompanied by wild horses…
…and dusty construction traffic. So not fun around Wamsutter.
Wyoming finally ended with steep inclines…
…and a brief sign off.
