WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE HIGH MOUNTAIN AIR? It's crisp and clean and thin. Gawd is it thin at 10000'. And, it's clear. Standing on a peak the vista must extend hundreds of miles...
... it just makes ya want to ride off into the distance to be heard from no more.
Maybe that's because when we're up this high there is nowhere to go but across the tops, though the high meadows of rugged grass and scrub, or to wend our way down through the pines into the valleys below.
But, I know the moment I reach the floor I'll turn my head around and see a new mountain, a new challenge...
... exhilaration awaits.
One of the things I love about the high country is the unpredictability of the weather. It can change quickly. Sunny to rain to snow.
Today we were hiking, but had I been riding I'd have packed the KOM jacket.
It's wind and water resistant membrane is amazingly repellant. Yet, it is so thin I can tuck it in my center jersey pocket. No prob.
This is one of my most favoritest creations.
