Well, in my last post I complained about how cold it is here, but boy let me tell you! Cache Valley is tropical right now compared to Jackson Hole! We went this weekend mostly to watch our loyal homie Nick Ropelato compete in the 2008 Jackson Hole World Championship Hill Climbs! He ran the first day and qualified in first out of about 25 people! I was really proud of him, as were all of our friends that were there to support him! Go Rope!

But anyway, we had a blast even though it was freezing cold! The wind blew like 25 mph and it snowed a lot! The food was great! We managed to eat at The Merry Piglets (a longtime fav of my fam). It was really fun. We took a couple rides to see herds of Elk. Thousands of Elk literally everywhere you look as far as you can see. They are still in their winter range, and it was a stunning sight! We were supposed to come home on sunday, but it was bad weather so we decided to wait and come on Monday. It was CRAZY! Matt and I both decided they were the worst roads we have ever rode on. It was snowing like mad, and blowing like 5 foot drifts on the road all the way through Hoback and Tincup. I was literally scared to death. But it turned out fine, and I have never been so excited to be in Soda Springs, Idaho in my life!
Even though it was kinda short, we had so much fun together and didnt want to come home for sure! Back to the grind, but I am noticing signs of spring so maybe things will get better.
