The Last Of Day 7

Day 7

We rested at the park for a long time---------it had been a strenuous day -------but it wasn't over.
We went West again out of Cokeville and I had hoped I had found roads on google earth that would take us up on top of
Coke mountain------elevation 8,890ft.
And the route proved to be a good one as we climbed up the mountain.





I had to resort to a little help from a local to navigate up on top of Coke Mountain.








We rode for I bet 20 miles on this high ridge hoping to lead us right into Fossil Butte National Monument.
The little road that turned off of this one to Fossil Butte was a mud fest of 20 miles and we gave up on that.










The riding was great as the main road turned Southeast towards Kenmerer and for 20 miles we just knew we were going to get pounded
with this rainstorm---------but never did. We got a motel in Kenmerer and the rains came down all night long.





A map of our days ride---about 130 hard fought miles.
We rode from dawn to dusk this day.
