Since my "little" cardiac event and subsequent surgery last month, I haven't been getting out with my normal photo geeking ride buddies for any action. It is a result of a couple of factors I believe. First, my rehab kept me to slow and short rides that don't coincide with their dynamic. And second, I believe I am now "tainted" in some of their eyes. Which on some level is understandable, I mean nothing ruins a ride faster than one of your group dying on the trail. Ask my wife.
So I finally decided to risk the extra pack weight and load up the big camera yesterday, for a geeking ride, to see how it would go. I ended up on Andy's Loop and Katie and Brian from Steamboat CO. happened by. They had just come down the Ribbon and since I needed some subjects I just started shadowing them, geeking away as they rode. I promised to make them famous by posting some photos on the blog, so here they are. For me it just felt good to get back to something that seemed normal.
The desert flowers are really blooming after all the moisture we've been getting.
|Brian loving the long hike!|
|Katie trying an up move she didn't think she would make, but did!|
Later in the day I slipped over to one of my nieghbors yards for some more geeking. So many flowers, so little time.
Until next time. It's good to be back. In fact, it's good to be anywhere!
