IMG_5548As I headed North in Utah, I had a feeling I was going to get wet.  I had to keep going though.  After spending an extra day in Arches National Park, I was running behind schedule on my way to Washington.

The last photo in this series is what happened when I waited too long to put on my rain suit.  I was on the side of the freeway, in the dark, with rain and wind. The sky opened up all at once.  I think I rode directly into a gust front.  I’m not sure how I didn’t get blown off the road.  The wind was so strong I had to stand close to the bike because it was  being pushed backwards.  I had to hold it still.  I was standing too close to the pipes when I was putting it on.  I’ve never ridden in so much rain and wind in my life.  As much as I love to ride, this one particular evening was not so fun.  I was on my way to a campground I had reserved but decided to get a hotel instead.
