DIRT Dad Fundo Across America- Day Fourteen

“Learn to ride a bicycle. You will not regret it if you live.” –Mark Twain

Rejuvenated and refreshed by the moderate temps, calm winds, and the memories of yesterday’s gem of a ride, I set off to add more souvenirs to my recollection collection.

Simply stunning!

The climb out of Hansville was challenging. The infiniti roads and endless views were like a hand on my saddle pushing me forward. I don’t want to pat myself on the back. I had a pretty awesome ride.

At the top of the 20-mile climb out of Hanksville, I came on a scenic overlook with an added reward. Each small sign corresponded with a distant peak or rock feature off on the horizon. The picture doesn’t do it justice.

Staying ahead of nutrition and hydration was the play of the day on this challenging up and down route. The roads went on forever and I needed to, too!

So, you’re permitted to ride on the Interstate in Utah. I don’t highly recommend it. Especially when the wind is in your face as you’re trying to descend into town and the swirling cyclone of the truckers wake is dragging you all over the road.

Little by little, I’m getting there. I hope it is in time to traverse the Rockies!

The city of Green River has a lot to be proud of, but the “Green” river isn’t tops on my list. The Shady Acres RV park is nice.

Ghost Rider IPA, Wasatch Brewery, Salt Lake City, UT
This dry-hopped and unfiltered IPA is the embodiment of drinkability. The juicy citrus flavor is balanced with a Premium Pale and Munich malt backbone that won't harsh your mellow.
