Here in these parts, we get quite a few rainbows. I never tire of seeing them though. The Rainbow Gathering is happnin right now in Cuba, NM right next door to us here. I debated headin down there to check it out but we will be in Breckenridge for the Firecracker 50 and to enjoy the 4th of July up there.
Had a terrific ride the other day out on the Rancho Viejo loop. 10 of us embarked on this mission and 10 of us returned. great day for a ride. I took a few snapshots to try and capture the day.
Anthony's new bike
Good to pick your own path
Mark and Jamie takin in some food
Always a nice place to stop for a snack
This is Todd. Riding along the river. It was great riding wirh Todd who is Krista's husband (I think)
If you go through this meadow without stopping and soaking it in then you are crazy
Todd and Krista both laid their bikes down in the same exact position. Isn't that cute?
Another killer ride in Santa Fe
What is in your audio player? I have Fanfarlo's new album Resevior in mine. It is quite nice. I love this Will Oldham cover they do to. Thanks to Dan at work for showing me this
Later and don't be a Hater

Got out on a couple SWEET rides with the Chut a while ago. One was a ride where we met at el Gancho and left a car there and drove another car to Glorieta Baptist center and pedalled up to the tower via ghost town and then descended Apache Canyon and then took a killer single track out to la Barbaria and then back to Marks awaiting truck. That last singletrack out was new for us and I thought it was fantastic. Can't wait to hit that one again.
Mark has found enlightenment
waiting for their friends
Finding our way
Brought along some whoppers to munch on
The trail and the views are top notch up here
Down at the apache trailhead.
It started getting hot out and I remembered a method Jay uses to cool off and I decided to give it a try. It worked
I love the roads above Canada de los Alamos
Then it was onto that killer last section of trail that I can't wait to get back to
Then Maka and I met up at the bottom of Pacheco Canyon rd and rode from there and went up to Aspen Ranch and then proceeded to ride the Rio en Medio and it was a KILLER ride. We got some showers at the tail end of the ride. Anyone who has spent some time in the high desert will tell you that the smells when it rains are phenominal.
Just above where pacheco canyon rd turns up towards Hyde Park rd.
We stopped for a snack
Sometimes I wish for signs to point the way. This is just too much though
I believe this to be a lovely ???
Then the lovely shower came and brought the smells out in full force
A trunk with a view
A couple of SWEET rides.Gotta love it. nothing like hitting the great outdoors for some good ol fasioned fun.
What is in your audio player? I have been listening to the new Elvis Perkins in Dearland album.
