Thanks! Campfires would have been especially cool, but those are just lights from a couple of park buildings (restrooms & vending machines)

I hope to be taking many pictures of the natural landscapes around my town once I actually decide on a bike.

...If I ever decide on a bike.

It is a nice first post.

Oh, and deciding on a bike is like deciding on a wave. Pick one and ride it. See where it takes you.

Went up to Mt Baker last night with some friends in hopes of seeing the aurora borealis. Didn't see it, but we still had an amazing view.
