Just rode 190 to South Pass into Saline and over Lippencott to the Race Track and out to Scotty's...

South Pass on Wednesday was muddy with patches of ice, but had been recently bulldozed. Yes bulldozed not graded. From South Pass to 190 a grader had been working making for a variable road surface with sucker holes filled with silt. There was fresh snow up there this morning, 2-4 inches.

Saline to Lippencott was mellow with nothing to report...

Lippencott yesterday was a highway. A few loose marbles here and there but we brought 5 1200 Gs's and one even had a sidecar up it. My 800xc fared the best..

The road from the racetrack out was a loose washboarded hell that only seemed to smooth out at about 45-50 mph...

There was a "moisture event" as the ranger liked to call it with snow down to about 5k feet. Not a lot, only 2-4 inches at best... Temps were chilly up high today and the wind was nuking...
