It's been three months since it snowed in the Wasatch. In celebration of a recent dusting, Noah and I set out on a little biking adventure. Noah proposed this route:
We generally followed the route pictured above, except that rather than riding over Twin Lakes Pass, we rode up to Catherine's Pass and down to Brighton. Here is a photo of Noah climbing Catherine's pass.
Here is the top of Catherine's pass, looking towards Brighton. While it's a place that both of us frequent in the winter, I hadn't been there in the summer. It's just as spectacular. The ride off the pass into Brighton was exciting. There were a few unrideable spots, but all in all, it was rideable. I got a bit too carried away and hit a granite water bar head on -- my first of a few flats of the day.
Here is a picture of my favorite view of the Pfeif, a view from the top of Puke Hill. Too bad the picture quality isn't great.
Gotta love the Wasatch. All in all it was a great ride and good times. Noah has been "working" hard all summer and is about to release his new movie "Flakes." Here's the trailer.
