For living in the Desert we're pretty lucky to have mountains right next to us. Last year, January 1st, Jake and I went Mt. biking here for the first time.
I probably went 15 or more times throughout the year and each time I loved it even more. The other day I got into the park at 5:05 p.m. and it was about 10 minutes too late for a fearless ride.
I swear the Desert comes alive at night.
I didn't see anything scary… or hardly see anything at all as it got late… but the noises! And when the coyotes started to howl…
But it was gorgeous. And COLD, but gorgeous.
