Hell Freezes Over...Almost

I've been a bit lame lately posting here, but nothing exciting has been happening beyond some so-so rides and lots of work. I'm only supposed to be working 3-days (yes I'm whining) a week, but lately I've been "called in" to work extra shifts nearly every week - that means I am volunteering to make mega $$$...it also means less time to play and enjoy life.

Well today was my only day off in an eight day stretch of 12-hr shifts to have some bike time. This morning it seems Hell had frozen over though. At noon it was a whole 18-degrees (F) outside when I decided to venture out with plenty of layers on. The street in front of my house was a sheet of ice so I decided I would mount up my Kenda studded snow tires on the Fisher Rig Single Speed (I've had these for 2 years and never used them until today). I found these tires perfect for the icy roads and bike path to Hells Gate State Park. They were a bit harsh on the trails at Hells Gate - too skinny for comfort (that means my soft butt was suffering a bit more than usual). However, I must say that these tires provided nothing but traction both up and down the steepest, snow-covered trails at Hell Gate (I even went down the snow-covered Devil's Slide with no problems).





Here is the way up to the top for a view of a frigid Hell...something I had to see...









Up on top looking up towards Hells Canyon with the Snake River in view...The top of the Devil's Slide (the steep trail down) can be seen here also...





There's not much better than seeing Hell froze over...Oh yeah this is the life...

Spam... yuk! Good to see you're getting out. We keep getting hammered by ice and snow. I should get myself a set of studded tires. Feeling fat and slow. I have to give up alcohol for a few months now...

Happy new year!
