Driggs Wydaho Mountain Bike Festival
The first annual Driggs "Wydaho Mountain Bike Festival" is in the books, and was a huge success. Joanne is on the planning committee, much-deserving of a shout-out for her considerable & effective work. About 200 folks took part in three days of live music, group rides, raffle giveaways, contests, movies, food, drinks, and perfect high-country summer weather.
Mark your calendars now for next year's festival dates: July 22-24, 2011. I expect to see a bunch of you!
In the midst of it all, Joanne and I enjoyed a couple of laps around Rick's Basin at Grand Targhee. How 'bout those wildflowers?!!
I also managed a quick evening hike on a little-known trail in the Tetons. There's something extra-cool about reaching snowbanks in late July.
After sixteen summers, I still don't tire of this view: descending Ski Hill road from Grand Targhee, looking straight up at the Tetons. Gotta be one of the most beautiful stretches of road in the world.
