I went out to ride in the desert again today since I had the day off from work. After last week’s ride, I took the bike in to the shop to be worked on, and it came out all beautiful and clean. I even have functional brakes now! It was a bit hot already, but I wanted to ride anyway. Here are some of the things I enjoyed today:
Clean and beautiful:
Blooming hedgehog cactus:
Cactus “bones” on the left, nearly camouflaged:
Wonder who, or what, lives here?
Delicate flowers amid the spines:
View toward downtown Phoenix far in the distance:
Just before I descended the last big hill:
Interesting plane overhead (airport is nearby):
Soon I was in the air conditioned car going home, dirty, but content. It was another great day of being outside.
