Jen went out to Vegas last week with the ladies for a getaway and I was on my own. I decided to take a few vacation days as well. Normal people would take some time to do something relaxing but I decided to paint the master bedroom and get it out of the way. It turned out to be more work than I thought it would be which led to 3 marathon days of painting and other chores with no riding. By Thursday I was glad to go to work and not be around the house. Today was like a beautiful redemption for last week when I made it out for my regular Monday solo ride and finished the full route I’ve been chipping away at for the past 2 months.
Weather and ride was as perfect as it gets. I didn’t want it to end but I really pushed myself and was pretty whipped by the time I got back or I would have looped around some of the valleys south of 152 again. I got an inexpensive point-n’-shoot in my easter basket so I’ll save the long winded stories and just show some pictures of the landscape. Apologies for all the crookedness–still getting used to the controls. Fiddling with a camera chips away at my average but I’ve decided I don’t give a crap.
