Yesterday we FINALLY had a warm sunny day. It was a good thing because Tim & I had already planned to pedal up Ute Trail (dirt road) to ride fun single track through the Arkansas Hills all the way back to town. This is a spring ‘everyday adventure’. Well I can’t really take three hour mountain bike rides everyday. This is a weekend adventure – from my front door.
The uphill allows me to deserve the undulating roller coaster back home. This is the reward for the grunt uphill.
And the views – that include the cottonwood and pinon pine trees, colorful rocks and peaks of the surround Sawatch & Sangre de Cristo mountain ranges.
Heading back to town the views of the Valley, town (that is Salida) and the Sawatch Range open up to a panorama.
The mountain mermaid loves her outdoor backyard and these everyday adventures. Everyone has their own everyday adventures.
I’d love to hear about yours!
