Gooseberry Respite

26 Mar

With all the snow and freezing temperatures around here I thought I’d remind everyone what it looks like just a few hours away at lovely Gooseberry Mesa.

Brian and Ally were on hand to help layout the deck foundation for yurt #1.  Yes, Brian, right there.  Nothing like  a little champagne to make sure things end up nice and square.


I always love seeing that people have their priorities straight.  I’m pretty sure the bottom bracket on Brian’s Pereira is worth more than the car.  Restores my faith in humanity.


In case you missed it and you happen to be  stuck in the frozen part of Utah let me remind you once more that there isn’t any snow or cold of any kind just few hours away.  Go on now.

    The only thing even remotely tempting about this is that the snow has come in so heavy and so fast that the avalanche danger is ridiculous at the moment. But I’ll take a powder day over any trail I have ever ridden in any place at any time.

    Cruel post today, since it was snowing this morning and my commute was a lovely creep-along affair with an ice sheet I-15 from Pleasant Grove to Alpine.

    Brian’s car rocks.

    I love the snow, but am glad to see you making progress on the yurts. I will come check things out when the snow melts.
