Wamer day today

I went riding on the new trails on the South side of Corner Canyon.  I enjoyed these trails because its somewhat easier for me to get home from these trails.  I wonder if these trails will remain open for a longer period during the winter months because of increased sunlight on the South side of Corner Canyon?  http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9

Commuting Fun (as long as I don’t get hit by a car)

I made the commute one day last week.  Its always enjoyable to get out in nature, even when the mornings are particularly cold.  However, the commute back home on the North side always seems to take a long time.  That’s why I’m thinking of switching my commute route to the South side of Suncrest.  I’m hoping that this will be a faster way up.  Also, I can take a bus for part of the way home, which isn’t available on the North side []

Frost on the window – Snow on the mountain peaks

This morning, I saw snow for the first time on the mountain peaks surrounding my house.  In addition, I also had frost on my car window this morning.  The cooler weather seems to be coming rather soon, however, as summer doesn’t end until September 21st, right?  Since we live at 6,000 feet, I suppose that accerlerates the onslaught of fall and winter somewhat.  I did ride 5 more miles this morning.  I need to go on some long-mileage rides in order to meet my goal.  http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9

Interesting cloud

I took the picture of this cloud at just the right time when the sun was hitting it to make it red.  I thought it had kind of a magical look to it – like something from a cartoon.  The reason I say that I took this picture at just the right time is because, just a few moments later, I wanted to take another photo and the cloud was no longer red, but grey.  Could there be a lesson to be []

More fun in Park City

I went on a couple of rides in Park City over the last week.  I rode the Mid-mountain trail from Park City to the Canyons.   Then, I rode Armstrong up to Pinecone.  Its great riding up there.  I also busted up my wheel on the way down.  So, my bike is again in the shop and on the mend.  This has been a rough summer on my bike.  I had to replace the front gearing, as well as the front wheel.  At []
