Saturday, I took a chance there would not be tooooooooo many people on road bikes in Emigration Canyon, as I have not been up to the summit of Big Mountain yet this year and wanted to do so before the road opens.
As you can see from the picture below, I made it and it was beautiful.
Question to all: as I was ascending the stretch between where the road splits toward Pinecrest Canyon and the Little Mountain summit, I watched perhaps 9 or 10 Unified Police cars, in groups of 2 or 3, fly down the canyon, (50+ MPH) with red lights and sirens. Before I reached the summit, I saw at least 3 or 4 more, without lights and siren, but flying by at the same rate of speed. I have not been able to find any information on the news about police activities, either criminal, emergency, or some sort of First Responder show of solidarity, that would explain what was going on.
Any one know what this was all about?
