|Taking it all in.|
Like any single track in this immediate area, there isn't any appreciable elevation gain or loss. There are just woods, and twisty ribbons of dirt through them. It was a beautiful day and I got off work early. Add it up and it meant it was time to partake of a nice, long way home.
The ride wasn't anything spectacular, just a nice, easy ride with a few stops to smell the flowers, (literally), and to check out a spider, or whatever tripped my trigger. In a world of calamity, instantaneous connections, and a barrage of garbage created by man being slung at me, these bits of solitude away from the "grid" are a good medicine. Plus, it won't be all that long before the brown ends of Fall become Winter and I'll be glad to shut the wind chill and blowing snow, (probably), out. These tranquil Fall days are precious. Missing out on an hour of pay is well worth it.
