Silence Is Golden

My story-garden oft goes untended during summertime. The hoe becomes rusty lying in untended dirt. Long days beckon. Priorities shift to play. Time slips into the future. Weeds overtake produce.  

A call comes from Nephew Brent over in Golden. He's itching for a road trip with son Owen, who's suddenly 6 feet 4 inches and about to leave the nest for college. We agree to meet in wide-open Crested Butte, and alternate between mountain bike adventures and drinking beer.  


  1. Doesn't look like a drought there in Golden. And I see no smoke, just a lovely sky, lots of green, and a great bike ride. And I am green with envy at the people who actually get to sit with you and learn some of your tricks and enjoying a "visually entertaining evening". To say the least!

  2. Looks like you found some nice trails to ride in CB.
    So how did the program go?

  3. As an Arabian horse owner, that trail looks perfectly heavenly for trotting a few hours!

  4. What a wonderful time! It looks as if you rode up the 401! Am I right? I've been itching to get there. We totally missed the flowers last year due to the late snow melt. I guess that this year is the opposite!

    I bet that the program was tons and tons of fun! "Visually entertaining!".

    1. "Snodgrass Trail." You can ride to it from town and make a loop-back. Do it counter-clockwise for the most fun...

  5. That header photo is gorgeous! A big Wow!! Looks like a great time. Love all the wild flowers:) Hope your program went well. I would have enjoyed hearing you.

  6. What a beautiful place to ride...and to drink! Love the bikes through the forest shots.
