Picture Rock in Late November

Indian Summer. It keeps lingering, casting it's warm golden rays down on us. I'm OK not having snow yet, if this is what I get in return.

Today I went on a mountain bike ride with Mike and Sue and their friend Kathy (Jesper stayed at home and worked on the hot tub all day with our friend Larkin). We rode the Picture Rock Trail, the newest addition to the Heil Ranch Boulder County system of trails. It's a great single speed ride, going gradually up for over 5 miles before it hooks up with the Wild Turkey Trail up at the top of Heil. We started out in warm sunshine, but finished with the setting sun and strong winds, making for a chilly descent.

It was a good ride. Click here for more pics.

(BTW - I AM getting ready for some snow here soon)

New Look

It's time for a new look. I get in that mood every now and then. Gone are the greens of spring and the white light of summer. Instead, I am reveling in the warm browns and golden lighting of fall. It's a work in progress; picking new colors and finding the right picture for the header. When it's done, I hope you like the change too.

Jesper and I went to our first Halloween party together. Since we've been together five years now, I clearly haven't been to a Halloween party in more half a decade. I'm not sure why, because it's really fun to get dressed up and see what crazy costumes other people wear.

This particular Halloween party was a wedding party. One of my Git Some adventure racing teammates, Derec, eloped with his then girlfriend Camille in August. Dressed as Frankenstein and his Bride, they opted for a Halloween party to celebrate their marriage. For some reason, I failed to take a single picture of the bride and groom! If someone sends me one soon, I'll stick it in here.

Jesper and I went as Jeannie and Major Tony Nelson from the 60's show I Dream of Jeannie. I wore a genie costume that my mother made back in the 60's!

I adore my Master!

The best costume of the night went to my Git Some teammate David Garcia. Can you guess which one he is?

Teammate Lee, me, Jesper, fellow adventure racers Tina and Charlie, David (My BUSH would make a better President), Nicole (David's girlfriend), Teammate Oat and his wife Annie

Halloween parties are fun because people feel like they can be super silly when they're dressed up.

I had a great time and drank too much wine. I don't think I'll wait five more years for another Halloween party!

Here's a linky to more pictures.
