Day 14, Jackson to Debois

Woke up to 43 degrees, very cool, but not as cold as it can get in Jackson. Put on my long riding tights, riding jersey and yellow riding jacket. We got on the road by 6:45. Our destination was Dornans for breakfast. It was about 16 miles into the ride. The view from the outdoor picnic table for the Tetons was spectacular. After breakfast, a moose was eating his breakfast in the river. I took several photos of him.

As you can see from the photos, we were riding north along the Tetons for about 50 miles until the picnic stop. From there we turned east, then south east while climbing. Much of the road was pretty chopped up from road construction.

By the time we got to the top of the climb, we were at the attitude of some patches of snow. Imagine that, snow on the 5th of July!

We descended to about the 83 mile mark to the Lava Cafe where we stopped for some much needed coffee and snacks.

The remaining miles was downhill with the wind to our backs. About 6 miles from town, the scenery changed to exposed layers of red sediment hills. The view from the road was striking.

Arrived in town tired but memories of the ride will stay with us.
