Story

 There's something really special that happens when the snow gives way on the steep hillsides and the valley floor begins to soften. Trees become whole again, bushes spread their feeble, weeping  limbs and generations of structures that endured a weathered past, awaken to witness another magical Spring. While some of yesterday could've been difficult, today is a new day. So good to see you old friend. I've missed you so.

This is another one of my go to rides that takes you through the very small but resilient town of Woodland Utah.
The barns along this route have a story to tell.
The sight of a bugger of a hill up the road is blurred by the roaring extensions of the Provo river.
The Woodland Biscuit Company looking like an attraction at an old Wild West town. When it opens again, go there. It's amazing.
A converted playground or a distraction from the hard winters.
The Samak Smoke House. An ole timey stop before heading high into the Uinta Mountains
Stop in and get yourself some smoked cheddar, melt it on a bun, add some avocado onto your best protein and enjoy.
