I wanted to visit Maple Creek to enjoy some warm weather, but the fog overtook me while climbing Butler Valley.
Before turning around I went a few miles on beautiful yet treacherous
Bald Mountain Road
So many wildflowers and snow on distance peaks still today!
my favorite flower is lupine
Mad River levee, fennel and pea
I couldn't name half the flowers I saw today.
Easily more than a dozen varieties.

While Mike and Stacy ran half of the
Avenue of the Giants Marathon
, Ryan and I rode the hills above in
Redwood State Park
I felt strong on my bike, the weather was perfect, and trail conditions were optimum. I had the best run ever on this trail today!
Now my legs are destroyed and my need for speed is temporarily relinquished. Mission accomplished.
swoopy singletrack = fun
