WOW what a day. Can’t wait to post the bigger hi def pics when I get back. When I came around a turn seeing the whitecaps in the distance for the 1st time I was in awe. I had no idea I was going to be on top of those mountains later. Climbing higher and higher watching the temperature drop I was now 8400 feet above sea level and snow still on the ground thinking to myself what did I get myself into. It started to hail and I was starting to descend down the mountains on this small winding road on a motorcycle thinking I hope I brought enough underwear, but it did stop and cleared up and I was able to take some amazing shots in panoramic view. So after deciding not to go to Yellowstone I did anyway because I’m here and that is what this trip is about. So on my way there about 5 miles from there it starts to snow and I can see all the snow clouds in front of me knowing I’ll be riding in that soon. So I pull up to the tourist sign and take a pic that I posted and proceeded to pull up to the gate with a CLOSED sign. The park ranger tells me that there was an Avalanche 7 miles in and the park is closed. In the back of my head I said oh thank god because of the snow falling. So I turned around and had to go back 50 miles because its the only road in. Tomorrow will meet my brother and have the bike serviced and new tires.
Can’t wait to see your hi-def pictures! Stay safe!
