    I start looking for the turn around Labor Day. For me, the turn is when 80 degree days and 45-50 degree nights turns into 65 degree days and 35-40 degree nights.
    F***ing Park City has perfect weather all year round.

    Saw some tops of aspens and a few other leaves changing in Glacier National Park this week, and a few birds flying in formation. But it will be almost 90 here at home in JH, so that doesn’t really count.

    Shit, I don't care if it's still summer here in. Austria. Wife finally agreed to go to Japan in jan-feb next season for some reason I haven't figured out yet. Just booked flights, first time for us and I'm fucking psyched!!! My brain has had the turn, if not the weather, already putting the gear together.

    The turn comes in SLC when there is the first NW flow event strong enough to push the Lake Stink up into the Cottonwood Canyons. Miss that place.
    Doesn't mean that much to me, to mean that much to you.

    Well, it certainly wasn't today. The SW flow pushed smoke from various fires all the way up to PC and into my lungs which were already suffering from the heat and dust. 86 when I got back to the car at noon. One of the hottest days I've been on the bike up there.
    Forecasted lows on the Aquarius Plateau this weekend are low 50s. At 10,500' that is...

    For sure. Some flocks of geese flying over Simi at night lately, no idea where they're going. Partying in TJ maybe, and headed back North.

    On my ride last night, saw some vegetation slightly turning, and a few times got that whiff of decaying vegetation that screams "Fall". It is coming.

    Early morning, Crested Butte. Green as hell. If itís not the Turn yet here, itís not the turn anywhere. So knock it off. Even the top of Cottonwood Pass is mid summer.

    I wore arm warmers for the first part of my ride yesterday. That's something, right? But really, the Turn can't even be considered until after Labor Day weekend.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    Is the CB side still prohibiting trailers of any kind?

    Open to traffic both ways. They need to add another lift of asphalt to about 1.5 miles on the west side on the westbound lane.

    No trailers no bikes on that side. Not sure if they will open it to those after the lift is complete, which Iím guessing will be a few days, or wait till after they put up guardrails, which will take longer.

    really irritated with the "no trailers" thing. Was all excited that I might be able to go Cottonwood to get to my campsite by the Taylor River this year, but no.... Bastards.

    Just be grateful you don't live in Washington. Out here, after the road fell into disrepair, they would just permanently close it and let nature reclaim it.

    Also, you people who are talking about feeling the turn after Halloween are just as wrong as the guy who bumped it back in early August.
    Doesn't mean that much to me, to mean that much to you.
