Picture Rock

Last night I went biking for three hours at a really beautiful trail called Picture Rock, about a half hour from here. I wish I had my camera because the scenery and weather were absolutely perfect for picture-taking.

I climbed and climbed and climbed…stopped…took in the view…rode on a few more yards…turned around…and came all the way back down.

I made it as far as the scenic outlook, which apparently is more than 5.5 miles one way. I had no sense of time while I was out there. I left the trail parking lot at around 4:45 PM and arrived back at the car at 8:03 PM. The timing was perfect, because there was just enough light out for me to find my way back. The weather couldn’t have been better; it wasn’t hot, it wasn’t cold, it wasn’t too windy or stuffy or anything at all. Just perfect.
