In April of every year they close the road to Hyalite Canyon. And the cabins up in that part of the world are a little easier to rent. This is what we do; so a little 13 mile climb is no big deal for us. Also carrying a couple of days food and bedding is right up our ally as well. It’s what we do … right? My big goals for the weekend were to ride morning crust. And to avoid headaches from the smoke. The smoke yes, because the stove in Window Rock Cabin is the worst. But once things heat up and the cracks get tighter the smoke actually starts to go up the chimney. The first night is the worst but if you keep it stoked your good to go day 2 onward. Almost like some rides I have been on. Once warmed up it is all good.
