It’s been quite a spring. Between events and some unseasonably cold weather and other events and more events, we didn’t get out for a camping trip until this last weekend, just as May was turning into June. In fact, another event almost got in the way of this one. We’d been considering a 200k brevet with the local rando club, but opted instead to load up the bikes and ride west in a leisurely fashion for a night of camping at Brigham County Park.
Saturday afternoon was beautiful and warm, with some breeze. Perfect for leisurely riding and hammocking in camp. Saturday night turned stormy (must remember to re-seal the rainfly seams…) and Sunday started cool and rainy, only to turn hot and humid. A 2pm departure and back by noon the next day. Stops for dinner at the Grumpy Troll, supplies at some gas station convenience store, and breakfast at Sjolind’s — all in Mt. Horeb, either coming or going.
I’m damn glad that we could finally break the seal on the 2014 camping season — and I’m looking forward to more of these trips, short or long.
