The photo above is a new creek crossing I'd never taken before. The creek is a little low right now. So this spot usually looks like the trail just rides into the water. But with extra time on my hands and more exposed creek bed I was able to ride it to the other side and pick up a trail I'd never been on.
Eventually, I popped out into a familiar area and was able to cross the creek again at a low point. I love how something like rainfall affects the entire landscape and whether or not something is rideable.
I had a great day in the sun and heat. I rode my normal trail route about twice as many times as usual and was able to get in some new stuff, too. It was a great time to be on a bike. Big thanks to Angie for letting me ride!
Get out there.
