Wow. This was quite a trip. The first day involved 7+ hours of riding. At least 5 of those hours was in the sun at 100 degree weather. We got a late start at 4pm and headed up with our loaded trailers up to the U. From there we took the Bonneville Shoreline Trail to Emigration Canyon.

This was hard.



We took many well needed rests in the shade.

Emigration Canyon is a nice, steady incline of about 7.8 miles to the summit. Elevation gain is 1478 feet, making it about 1974 feet total from our house to the summit. We probably gained another 415 feet after that riding to our campground at Affleck Park. I think we arrived at the campground around 11pm.

Emigration Canyon is a hot spot for roadies. We were the only ones carrying trailers.





Almost to the summit!



Looking down into Emigration at dusk.



Dinner.



Pepe le Pew. Can you see him down at the bottom? He was quite brave, waltzing through our camp during dinner. I didn't want him to get too close, though.

Our camp in the morning.



We were very tired and sore this yesterday. We took our time with breakfast.



Coffee stuffs.





Affleck Park.



The start point of our second day.



It was a short (relative) climb up single track to the road.





Then it was an easy ride back down the hill to Little Dell Reservoir.

Yay! We made it to the reservoir!





It was very pretty here. So quiet and peaceful.





We were both feeling pretty tired so we laid out our mats and rested up a bit.

This morning.



We woke up bright and early so we could get out of there before someone saw us. We weren't supposed to camp there, but circumstances gave us few choices.







Up and out.





View from the summit.



It was a pretty fun ride, all in all. Tweaked my knee a little bit, we both got somewhat dehydrated even though we drank TONS, and my fingers are feeling just a tad numb. The ride home was nice. Almost downhill the whole way.

We have a lot more pictures here if you want to check them out.

cool pics! such beautiful landscapes...Thanks for sharing.

although now my wife will want us to do something like this...I usually am the one dragging her out to ride, but she loves the wild & wooly outdoors...

Alas, I am a wimp about roughing it (I'm more like the wife on Green Acres - I want five star pampering after a ride.)

Great pics! For some reason I'm a little surprised you brought freeze-dried food. Ben has a park? More Shadiyah in skimpy top. Less Joe playing hacky sack. This is training for a bigger ride, no? You need to work out a system for daily updates: small laptop, satellite phone.

Heh, yeah we didn't actually build that. We found that up there. I don't think we had to motivation to build anything beyond setting up our tent.

I don't think that was me. I was having problems with numbness in my pinkie and ring fingers of my right hand, though. Still am, but its not so bad since I changed out my grips and pull bar ends on.

What do you think we should have brought? Those meals are great if you are trying to keep your load as light as possible. Plus, we got a kajillion of them as a wedding gift. Yup, we are in training for our Continental Divide Ride (Canada to Mexico). We will probably bring a laptop for that.





Better?
