This! Is Where I Live and Ride.

I went for a good ride today.... And Thought I would share a bit of it with you. I made 2 short videos and combined them into one to tighten them up and took a bunch of pics. what would be really awesome is to see your countryside. Where you live and ride? And what do you see?

Here's some of those pics and video of what I see. And what riding in the Okanagan looks like.

Enjoy!























I had to take a pic of this. Old House Still Standing..

They are rough at times but! Keep in mind. In the backwoods you are not being watched. KM and MPH Depend on your ability. If you're unfamiliar with the train! Slow down..

Thanks for taking the time to put that together - wow the air looks so crisp and clean. Pretty good elevation 'eh I bet old man winter comes pretty early and stays pretty late and does a number on the roads. I find a nice ride breathing deep fresh air good for the soul and the clears out the cobwebs of my mind setting me up for a deep sleep. The wife travels up to Canada now and again on business I should tag along sometime and rent a bike up there and go for a spin.

It's bad luck to be superstitious..

Living in North Idaho I get to see this all the time as well, however with all the fires going on round here the air is not as fresh as usual

We are blessed to live in such scenic areas. And I know what you mean about smoke. Today we have a thick haze covering the whole valley here. Stark contrast from yesterday.I just took this pic off my back porch just now. You should be seeing a mountain side in this shot.
