Beautiful ride today much of the ride on bike paths. We are trying to ride through Idaho to avoid some of the smoke and fires to the north. The ride took us over Teton pass that featured over 2000 feet of climbing in 6 miles.
Went over Snake River and enjoyed watching rafters taking off
If you look at picture to right of road you can see the secondary road we came slowly up.
Hazy but spectacular view
Elevation chart from today’s ride. Slow steady uphill with steep decent on the other side. Unfortunately the bike path was only on the uphill. We were on the road for the decent and was not as fun as it might have been because of poor shoulder and road conditions.
Idaho moose drinking next to road she is keeping her eye on Mark.
Over the pass we rode through 2 little towns Victor and Driggs. Like Jackson they were once sleepy mountain towns and are now growing with second homes and tourist related activities. A local told us “when the billionaires moved to Jackson the millionaires moved to Victor and Driggs.”
Another local cyclist told us about rail trail between Victor and Driggs sweet! This is drive in movie house of course in Idaho “The Spud”. Check out truck in front.
