It still looks like spring in the mountains and canyons in Utah. The weather has been so mild. On Saturday I decided to bike the Alpine Loop. It was 47 miles round trip. Not a bad workout. For some dumb reason I didn't start biking until 2pm so I got to bike during the hottest part of the day.
I rested and took some pictures. The downside is that it is all uphill one way and then you just coast pretty much the entire way home.
My favorite/awkward moment on the ride was when I stopped at Sundance to refill my water bottles and I was walking through the gift shop and a man in his 40's started yelling at my from across the shop. Yelling congratulations for making up the hill and telling me how proud he was of me (apparently he passed me in his car on the way up). Picture me in my spandex, lots of people looking, feeling very weird, and thinking I have still got a long way to go to the top. He meant well but I was a little embarrassed to say the least.
I also saw a huge moose close to the top of the loop. It was a beautiful animal with horns (is that what they call them on moose?) and everything. Unfortunately I didn't get any good pictures of him.
Today Katie stopped by on her way through town. It was super fun to visit for a few minutes and catch up on life.
And tomorrow is a Utah holiday so lots of people have the day off work. What could be more exciting then that?
