|| Skier / writer Beth Lopez at Solitude Ski Resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon on a warm spring day. ||
|| After such a long, mild winter in Utah, it feels right to hit the trail again. Today, I rode in the morning with friend and photographer Stan Evans, and in the afternoon with Re Wikstrom and athlete Shaun Raskin. Both laps were along the Shoreline trail, eventually dropping into the Bobsled downhill trail. A beautiful day, good friends, a little mud, and lots of laughs. Can’t beat the fact that living in SLC might mean dirty air some days, but it affords incredible access to world class riding everyday. The dog’s name is Nelson. ||
Salt Lake City has been a sad state of affairs the last few weeks. The rain won’t stop.
Little Cottonwood Canyon residents are lining the river with sandbags, and a few of the reservoirs are overflowing.
Last summer all I had to complain about was the endless heat, now its the rain. We’ve been treated to some serious fireworks display courtesy of the thunderhead clouds rolling through.
My buddy Matt Boynton snagged a couple of cool shots from his house in SLC at the same time I grabbed one up in Park City.
Wild stuff, glad I had my camera. Thanks for the photos Matt.
Spring has finally begun to roll into Salt Lake.
Currently washing clothes, unpacking bags, repairing gear, cleaning my car, working towards getting my taxes done, and at some point sleeping hopefully.
Looking forward to summer.
No Home Depot, no Bed Bath and Beyond, just a little ride into Sugarhouse to get business done.
Pushing a 6in travel bike around city streets isn’t the most enjoyable thing in the world but it gets your legs jacked, oh snap.
Stan Evans and I went on a mid-day caffeine binge with our laptops to do a little people watching, bullshitting, and general business. Cruised some neighborhoods and ended up mowing down some wings before we pedaled back up to the ‘hood.
Not too shabby, a nice little Saturday.
