I love riding my mountain bike in mid-summer's glory on high alpine trails.
It never gets old, even after years of exploring.
While I'm out there, I sometimes see marmots. This one seemed so tame that I wondered if people had fed him. I talked with him for a while - and I named him Marvin. Do you see his two buck teeth? He's a huge rodent with the teeth to prove it.
Every year, I feel like the bottomless wildflowers are a gift, and I love playing with the Duo in them.
We play and play and play.
And then, some days, sunset is glorious. Do you see the almost full moon above the mountain?
This particular sunset, viewed from 11,300' in the mountains, got more intense by the moment. The mountain in the photo is almost 14,000' tall.
That almost full moon made the sky bright blue as the stars streaked across it over the course of almost an hour.
