Readers-

I continue to slowly recover from my car accident of six weeks ago. Just when I thought things were great, I tried to exercise today. Managed one lap in the pool until my lower back whispered loudly in my ear: “That’s enough.” So I water-walked for 15 minutes. I’m thinking of joining DO NOT LAUGH a water aerobics class.

I want to post some road trip photos of trips gone by. Below are image moments from one of my most favorite (I know, I say that all the time) from May of 2005. It was just me, the Subaru (RIP, Subi), the Yeti, and all the camping gear that would fit. I went to the less traveled places including Bishop’s Castle, CO; Westcliffe, CO; Mexican Hat, UT; Goosenecks State Park, UT; Mogi Dugway, UT, Owl Creek Pass near Ridgway, CO; and ended the trip with a solo epic bike ride up the northern section of Kenosha Pass. I didn’t make it to the top (almost passed out about a mile from the summit), but let’s remember: it’s not about the destination.

After galavanting around the Castle and biking around Westcliffe, I high-tailed it to the deserts of the extreme south corner of Utah.

Stay tuned for more pix.
