I have ridden this trail hundreds of times.  I’ve ridden it so many times that I probably take its very existance for granted.  Today was different, though.  For some unknown reason I felt compelled to stop and just take it all in.  I listened to the prairie dogs’ chatter, and exchanged a few words with a woman who was walking her dog.  I wasn’t thinking about my job, Strava, or even this blog.

And for that, I’m very grateful.
