Thankfully, I’m writing this from a tent tonight. After two night in a hotel room I wasn’t that keen to go for the trifecta.
I did a quick mental list of the times I’ve been snowed on…
- Day 1 from Seattle going over the pass… snow that stuck on the road (!) and my face shield.
- Day 3 in Bryce Canyon while I was hiking to Inspiration Point (thankfully now while riding)
- Day 5 going to and from the north rim of the Grand Canyon — light hail that stung as it hit my neck and a little bit of a flurry
- Day 6 (today) a hella lotta snow going north to Moab. Any time it was precipitating above around 6000 feet: snow. I got up to 7000+ and it was a heavy snow that was sticking to my visor and windshield.
So, tallying that up, 4 out of 6 days I was snowed on.
But I’m still here… snow notwithstanding.
I got a nice campsite on the Colorado river in the valley surrounded by buttes. (…I like big buttes… there I have that stuck in your head.)
I think I’ll stay here a second night.
