This is from my first tour last may. Riding through the rolling hills of Northeast Missouri with some friends to stay the night at Sandhill farm.

Do I really have to choose just one? OK, I guess I'll go with this one.



Or maybe I'd choose this one??



No - perhaps this one is better?

'

Well, dang! I just can't choose. Maybe I shouldn't post one at all...

The astute may recognize this location.
I was standing at the finishing point of the last race in "American Flyers".
Although the movie claimed this was the top of Mt Evans, it is really Echo Lake.

Since the one picture rule has already been broken, I will add these. But only I am allowed to get away with it because I'm the OP:

Not really my "best", but my favorite (click for larger view). It's in Gros Morne national park, Newfoundland.

I don't see your pic. Seems there's a bit of extra code you need to remove (?v=3z). I removed that part and pasted the remaining adress in an empty browser page and was able to see it.

The Falls in Paterson, NJ. this view alone was easily worth the trip.


This shot is becoming traditional for me: My loaded touring bike in Philadelphia 30th Street Station. This is the second bike I've taken this exact shot with; the last one was hit by a car.

That's gorgeous! Did you take that on a timer, or is it not you in the picture?

Thanks. No that isn't me in the shot, it's my part-time touring buddy. I snapped that one unawares to him. I still don't think he's seen it today.

It is either this one or a picture I took of a clean porta sans toilet. That was pretty nice to see at the time.

Delver, that is the MKT Trail connecting Columbia, MO to the Katy Trail, correct?

A fun and shaded trail to ride on.
