MAA – Day 8 – I Love the Mountains

I love the mountains. I love the rolling hills. I love the flowers. I love the daffodils… One of the many songs that popped into my head today (Now you try to get it out of yours!) I really do love the mountains! This was a perfect day! I rode 55 miles from Salt Lake CityΒ to Coalville, UT with 4900 feet of climbing. It was a hard day but oh so satisfying! And the views were absolutely spectacular! I stopped early to respect the SAG Team. We needed a spot to set up for the night and there will not be another for way too many miles.

Just 1 1/2 miles away from the night’s campsite, I got my first flat! Ugh! But – good human to the rescue once again! I was just going to walk to the RV park when along came Alan. He was driving by, stopped and asked if I needed help, and he drove me to the park! He would take nothing from me except a thank you and the opportunity to help someone!

Alan to the rescue!

And then Mr. SAG to the rescue. He had the flat changed in short order! He had even gotten the riding bug – was coming back from across town when I pulled in.DSC01242

  1. Hey Michele
    Now that tire took on a lot of miles before negative air.
    Always great to have a Good Samaritan to come along.
    Keep up the positive attitude.
    And keep listening to the great tunes!!

  2. Great song choice! The WAG (aka SAG) looked like they enjoyed the mountains as well. Fred aka Scoobert hanging tough I see. I love the great stories of helpful and kind people. Big world out there!
