Blue butterflys on my nose…

Soaking in the sunshine.

Soaking in the sunshine.

We made it down the Creeper Trail with no flats, no blowouts, no injuries.  Well no injuries to our party of 6.  We did witness a emergency rescue of a woman who ran off the trail and into the creek.  It was pretty scary and a good reminder to wear a helmet and pay attention while riding.  Aside from witnessing the emergency, the day was a beautiful combination of sunshine, solitude, fellowship, butterflies, and ice cream.  [smile]

About halfway down the trail I was addicted.  Could you blame me?  We were riding thru some of the most beautiful scenery; it was downhill almost all the way; and did I mention the butterflies!  [smile]  A butterfly actually flitted by slightly grazing my face.  It was the exact blue of my bike.  Below are the promised photos from the day.

We started our ride in the rain and rode into the sunshine.

The bikes lined up and ready to go.

Finally a picture of the two of us.  I'm thinking this is a contender for our Christmas card! [smile]
