We took a loooong bike ride over the weekend. Well, longer than what I've ever ridden. Only 7 miles, but they were beautiful. I so wanted to take a nap instead, but am glad that we did it. It's pretty awesome when you get to ride next to the Rio Grande, even if it's not at all majestic looking. The portion of the river here is actually quite brown and very small, but the area around it is stunning due to it's life-giving water. I think I'd be ok with being non-majestic and not so clear/clean if I contributed to making the things around me beautiful. I want to attempt that with my life.
Anyway, I had a few Lion King moments while riding, and unfortunately I didn't have any pockets to take my phone with me, so I settled on these shots after our ride, near where we parked our car. Um, yeah. Pretty amazing, right?
Though there are times that I miss living in the midwest, there are about as many times that I almost have to pinch myself because I can't believe I'm lucky enough to live somewhere that is so, so beautiful.
What do you love about where you live?
