SIgnal, I almost grabbed a bench battery and hooked up my heated gear when I looked at those pictures! It's tough working a camera with cold hands. Thanks for your efforts in keeping this great thread alive.

Mike

Utah is an amazing place to cycle. It is just endless with beauty and roads.

Rounded golden Spike monument-
Love it when the gravel gets washed off








Road becomes single lane down the old RR cut/fill


Looking backward, east-ish


Happend to see this, right in the middle of the road (perhaps pushed up/uncovered during the winter)- just in time- missed it by about 3cm. Could have really ruined my day-
Irish or Chinese?? (sorry, didnt adjust the camera settings)










New sticker(s) from an excellent Secret Santa

Cool pics Signal. Thank you. You are encouraging me to see those wide-open spaces for myself. Keep 'em coming, please!

Hey Signal, Nice pictures there I think I recognize some of that terrain. Man we could have almost met, as I was riding the grade from the west. Sure glad you found that spike and not me

I was out there on Wed (25th), but stayed mostly toward the promontory/south loop- I didnt really get far west (saw your pics from Kelton and the graves there).

Finding (seeing) that spike was likey just luck, though one does try to watch the road . It did make me nervous and slow me down for a time.

Perhaps there is a need to plan a meet and greet overnight MRE fest- invite some guys from the east . Not much sound out there, just birds and wind.

They have indeed, I dont mind them- but have been relatively hard to find in the last few years- and at about the same cost as other dry bag meals

You not the first to have that though and, I suspect, won't be the last.
