The Way-Back Machine, part 2

At the bottom of a small hill, looking up - the descent used to be through a nice rock garden, but the property owners piled these boulders in the trail to prevent ATVs from using it:


This is actually quite a steep uphill section, although you wouldn't know it from this photo. It is an old road which heads straight up a hill and straight down the other side:


This little guy was busy as a...um...well, a bee:


Finally at the top of the trail, a long way up from the valley floor:


After the ride down the other side I'm greeted with a peaceful pastoral scene:


Only seven months to go until next June.

Sigh.....
We woke to snow on the roof tops this morning!

for now I'll have to settle for visiting June at the neighborhood Diner, she works the morning shift.

Thanks for the warm memories.

Whats Special about June? Theres at least 6 months of weather heading your way to be able to enjoy yourself with. I can recommend Panaracer Mud Pro's in 1.8.


They work in snow aswell.
