Tour de Evanston

In June, we went to watch the cyclists that came through town during the The High Uintas Classic race. I think Eric would have loved to be IN the race, but since he hasn't actually been on a bike in 2 years, he opted out. Instead we just cheered on the racers. There was a big storm on the way, so being the fair weather fans that we are, we went out to the edge of town and cheered for about 30 minutes...just before the torrential downpour started.

We parked the truck on the side of the road and we all sat in the back to watch the cyclists. Jack thought it was so cool. He loved yelling and clapping. He cheered for the cars as they went by too.
