I needed to bike. I needed to just be outside with no distractions. My regular ride with wasn't going to work. My body said Bird Point.
We drove through the wind and occasional rain drops. Pulled into the parking lot at Bird Point and got out the bike and took off. Through the tunnel onto the old road turned bike trail. Up the hill against the wind.
After a couple of miles of up, I stopped for a picture.
Then turned around and shot the rock wall behind me.
Back on the bike to the little rest stop back down on the bottom just before the Girdwood turnoff.
I walked around a bit, took some pictures until I got the colors right, then back. This time with the wind at my back. Much easier.
That was just what I needed.
