Finding a new path on bicycle, bettering a route, experiencing new terrain – exploration is mindfully soothing.
Thinking, hoping, wondering can powerfully chime the mind and gut when an experience dreamt of becomes reality.
Unachievable quality photographs were the constant. Cameras will never surpass my eyesight with their precision and depth. When pictures cannot describe, we must rely on words.
A first Independence Day for this American in the desert was everything that was wanted. A bicycle ride, a couple of craft brews and fireworks overload happened tonight.
On a windy dry river trail, every direction faced, impressive fireworks were witnessed.
Sitting in the refreshing breezy shade
Dull subtly humming 101 loop buzz
Pondering food, pondering bicycle rides
palm trees dancing
Mountains distant, standing short and tall in every direction
The sun ever present
Adapting to the desert has been a trial/error process. Surviving while Riding a bike and drinking beer all day in Illinois was easy compared to riding a bike and drinking one beer for one hour in the desert.
