Emmigration Canyon And Small Mountain

Little Dell Resevoir

As I am a masochist, I managed an expensive and last minute entry into the 2008 Lotoja Classic (beware of Flash). The race, or ride in my case, is a 206 mile course from Logan, Utah to Teton Village north of Jackson, Wyoming. I'm a little scared and a bit apprehensive.

Because life is busy, I extended my morning commute to include a 10 mile climb up Emigration Canyon to the peak of Small Mountain. The ride up the canyon is verdant, peaceful, and a high point in my day. The summit overlooks Little Dell Reservoir. The view begs me to roll down the far side and out towards East Canyon. I'm hoping to do an out-and-back from our home to the West Entrance of East Canyon State Park this coming weekend.

Interstate 84 to the north is under sufficient lane moving and rebuilding construction that bicycle traffic is unsafe to say the least. But, as soon as construction is completed in late September, I'm looking forward to riding a loop from home through Emigration Canyon, over Small and Big Mountains, around East Canyon Reservoir, past Morgan, down into and through Davis County to return home.

If I ever get on a bicycle again after September 6th.
