Cycling Star Valley, Wyoming
We cycled Star Valley, Wyoming, in the summer-time, seeking a trip with cooler temperatures than summer in Utah.
We checked-into a motel in Afton, Wyoming, and cycled southward (uphill) to near the south end of the valley, then cycled back to our motel on the first day.

On the next day, we checked out of our motel, and drove to Thayne, Wyoming, to start this segment of the trip.
We first cycled southward, to the Salt River narrows, then turned-around, cycling northward back through Thayne, and Etna. We turned-around somewhere north of Etna, and returned to our vehicle in Thayne.

At a rest-area, on bicycles – which way do we go?
We ate lunch here at the cheese-factory restaurant, and continued cycling northward toward Alpine.
We were considering going to Alpine, but it was getting hot, so we turned around about 10 miles short of Alpine.

From Etna, we continued cycling back to our vehicle in Thayne, and drove back home, satisfied with another scenic and interesting bicycle trip.
