I just left a hot tub. The last six days have been full of coincidences and fate, leading me exactly where I’m supposed to be. I resumed my bicycle travel on Friday. The same day I left Jackson, Harrison found me on the bike path leading out of town. About two months ago, we rode…
Have I mentioned the coal mining? I wonder what ORANGE CLOUD is and how to AVOID CONTACT.
There’s really not much out here, but the cool rock formations are keeping things interesting. I’ve been listening to music, which is a fun change!
Today, a steady tailwind has blown me forward. Wyoming has a lot of prairie/high desert going on. EDIT: I’m calling this day 100 miles, but technically it may have been a mile or two short. I can’t know for sure since I don’t have an odometer on my bike.
I began today at the Continental Divide, just short of the summit of Togwotee Pass. Since this morning, I’ve descended approximately 5,000 feet, and have accomplished several things. 1.

Jackson Hole has been stormy every day I’ve been here, though, with rain pouring from the sky every few hours. I’m coffee shop’ing today instead of experiencing nature.
