Where I stayed
As we were cycling along the trail all of sudden we were among the Army from Camp Campbell not far away a whole bus load full of guys piled out to do a hike, run or walk on the trail I guess. When we got out onto Hwy 189 is when the climb began and it just kept going and going up, up,up...the only nice thing was it was gradual so you did think it was so bad. We stopped in Heber City and had lunch at the Hub Cafe.....
Got back on our bikes and then the climb started again and it got a little steeper as we pedaled
After the summit I got back on my bike thinking is was going to be a long, long downhill and that was disappointing only about 8 miles with a little tail wind. We had decided to ride as far as we could today and get to Fruitland. We rode about 55 miles, got in the Van to go to Fruitland where there was suppose to be this beautiful Camelot Resort we never saw Fruitland and went down the road about 4 miles to find the Resort and the pavement ended so we turned around so ended up in Duchesne for the night at Camp World. Jane is in her tent and Katy and I in the Van. In town they wanted $90 at this Duchesne Inn and it looked terrible outside and the reviews were not good so was able to camp for $25 and maybe not quite the same comfort but who knows it may be better.
Anyway we had a nice day and are very tired so enjoy the photos from Katy who is doing a excellent job of driving and playing photographer. Sweet dreams, I know I will be alseep as soon as my head hits the pillow.
