Wow, a pinnacle day for my cycling. We left Jackson, Wyoming headed for the quaint cowboy town of Dubois (pronounced so it rhymes with boy). We were told that this would be the most picturesque day of the trip, and they were correct. The Tetons are so majestic, and so tall, they seem to be there every time looked. They also seemed to be there every time we looked back for the first 35 miles of the day. We didn’t make a lot of headway as we were stopping every 10 minutes for a photo op. They finally receded from view as we climbed to Togwotee Pass, elevation 9,658 feet. The whole concept of the divide fascinates me, as it separates the water that flows to the Pacific, on the West of the divide, from water that will eventually flow to the Atlantic or the Gulf of Mexico, on the East side of the divide. The climb up was long-2,900 feet, but not that steep-it took about 16 miles, so it was back to finding a zone, and staying in it, NOT at all like Teton Pass! ON our way into Dubois, we stopped for, what else, a photo, and we started talking with some workmen. They asked where we were going, when they recovered from that, they asked where we started, and one of them said ” I would’ve been dead by now!” Makes us realize what we are doing. I have tried to limit the number of photos I’ve posted each day to about 6, couldn’t manage that with these shots, they are too nice, hope you enjoy.
