Chalk Creek ride
The Uinta mountains already have snow on the peaks, so we could not waste a great day of weather by not riding. The route took us to Coalville, UT., up Chalk Creek Canyon, to the Whitney Reservoir area in the Uinta range. From there it was on to UT-150 to Kamas.
As the Chalk Creek road climbed, it was more rutted out than I ever remember seeing it. From the puddles in the road, it was obvious that there had been recent precipitation. A few of the aspen where starting to change color at about 9,000 feet.
