This fall, I have hung up the skateboard quite a bit more often and continually grabbed one of my bikes to ride. Between riding my city bike everywhere in Denver (because it is so much faster than driving) and getting out on the XC bike several times a week, I have managed to get back into my love for cycling. This transition into the fall season is my favorite time to ride.Almost too close for comfort.Today I saw a HUGE bull elk. He was protecting his posse of females. I heard his high-pitched call from a ways away. The trail just happened to go by their group. It was loud when I was right next to him.Some extra irie plants.
