Valle de Los circos -Socorrito to Catavinya

   Lanky waving Dr. Seuss cactus, bright liquid blue sky saluting, puffy cotton cloud drifting, excruciating intense heat riding, melted deteriorating pavement has been consuming my reality these last couple days.

How to Start a New Adventure – Following Heart

Bike Tour -San Jose through the Santa Cruz Mountains

My first climb up a mountain! Wet wet wet wet conditions and mystical clouds filled the hilltops.
