coastal: Don't think I've ever ridden with snowdrifts higher than my sled (that would be the right name for it in these conditions, don't ya think)? What do you think the temp will be at the top anyway?
I'm definitely making plans to be there but not sure about the wife yet.
That video was taken 10th June 2011 - and I have no idea if that was an extraordinary high snowfall year or not. But in the mountains after a winter of high winds you get significant drifting where some areas that are exposed are bare dirt and leeside can have drifts that are very deep. That would account for some of the areas in that video still having 15 ft snowbanks that they cut thru to open the road.Accommodation Jackson Hole
I talked with Super8 manager this morning – who happens to ride – and he is contacting his HO to see what rates he can get us – no answer yet, but should know in a day or two. I also asked if he could check and see if the discount rate could apply for any of us that need rooms on our trip to and from Jackson Hole.Grand Canyon suggestion for WARR 2014
What time of year would we have to schedule that to ensure we didn't hit 100+ degree temps? Last year at WARR/Carson Dreadly and company were planning on visitibg the canyon but there were eXtreme heat warnings for the area.
The Grand Canyon is a long ride from here - I might as well carry on south and mooch a couple months accommodation/food/brewskies at ROADKILL's estate in Florida.
