I’ve been on the road on and off for the past 4 weeks (Portland, Denver, Albuquerque, Las Cruces), and this is my first time home in a while. I’ve lost my routine, but today really helped me get back on track. This morning I started out with a food-free Hot Vinyasa Yoga class. It went really well, and no queasy feelings this time. Lesson learned, don’t eat before you do hot yoga. I got back from yoga, made my breakfast, and then got ready to go riding with Tanya and Kerry!
It was so wonderful out! Mid 50s, perfect riding weather. I got by with a SS jersey, vest, shorts, and knee warmers. We met at Kerry’s and rode the trails around the college (Lion’s Den, Rim Trail) and then went over to ride the Gulch. We stuck to the meadow area this time though, no bad mud! One detour off Lion’s Den though which was so much fun! Kerry showed us an old, overgrown cemetary and her geocache site. This is the neatest thing to see. I would never have known this was here unless Kerry had shown this to me.
There were many grave sites if civil war veterans, as well as others. Sadly, many grave sites were for young children. In one case, there were 3 children resting together. I can’t imagine the sadness their parents must have felt.
Kerry pointed out a geocache location. If you look above her head, you can see that tombstones are scattered all over the area.
We also found what seems to be remnants of a tram and an old rail car.
Tomorrow should be another fun ride, if I stick to my schedule. Nancy is having a pre-Thanksgiving party at 4 PM, so maybe we’ll be able to make that. It sounds like fun!
