Perfect Ride to the Crest Today, We'll Catch the Bird Next Week
I had intentions to ride "Libertad" up to Snowbird, schedules got complicated for my riding partner and we cancelled by noon with the promise of next week. But on an overcast day in the middle of the fall season in Utah, doesn't Suncrest sound more inviting anyway? I have cell coverage up that hill (I don't up Snowbird, and by myself?...not a good idea). Besides, I ate breakfast like I was going on a big ride, and never made it to swim training. So, I just went by myself. I love climbing up that monster mountain with oodles of space in my mind to just think. And I especially love after I've earned the right to race down. It was one of those days when all the world felt right up at the top. My phone doesn't take the best pictures and it certainly doesn't show how spectacular the valley looks up at the top. And there is no way it shows how great I felt up at the top either. Have a safe Halloween weekend!
