sometimes, this is what the week day hours feel like for me:


so it's best to do the anti-that^^ whenever possible.
highhhhhhh.... mighty and...



and my sweet honeypie...
up close and scrumptious

speical ed. man of my dreams.

... he makes that our goal ... always:
biiiiggg and beautiful

ed is the EdVenturer -- and the Ed'sploration' expert:

originally, i thought my sunday spirit and pony were destined for some finally techy-ffin' singletrack. ed suggested a far-away-forray on a dirt road. and i had to think about that a little bit... because i've had enough smoove for one season. but then i got to thinkin'... that i know honeypie, and i knew what he had in mind, and i was pretty sure that smoove had nothin' to do with it.

we go up now. i really like the up. up. up and aawwwaaayyy!!

and more up now. more. because we love it. moreup.

and, truth be told, my spirit wasn't looking for just a bit of ST techfest, it was looking for wheels on the ground at 7am, at 12,200' by 11am, 9-hour pony + hike play time, and sunshine for the duration. it was looking for an all day forray into new to us environs and some HIIIIIIIIIGGGGGHHHHHHH countrayyyyy...

naaappppp here. for 15 mins. just because it's sunday. and just because i can. while ed takes pix ;-)

ponies at rest while we bag a ridgeline and peak

it was looking for an all day duration of whatever the universe decided was right.

of course, the universe provides, and the high countray means some messay and funkalicious jeepin' trails:

too much fun to take pix of the too much fun trails

soaking and lovely.

i was fine with that. that made me extra-extra happy. like i could possibly be any happier. any. at all.

this was the wheelie-pop onto the big snow drop.


thank you honeypie...... thank you thank you thank you. and, your pix ROCK! i can't wait for you to put them all up!!!

There are no names or places, only trails to ride (and hike).
