The Galapagos Blue Footed Booby. As you might imagine, there is no shortage of "I love Boobies" T-shirts for sale.

Was surprised to see horses in this field on my ride today. No fences here so they’re free to go wherever. I ride along here a lot and have never seen horses or anything else in this field.

Recent weekend - 3 rides in or around the northeast corner of the Park.


Blue sky

Alpine lakes

This time of year in the mountains gives me that pre-Winter feeling

but not quite yet

I was a couple of weeks ago. Patagonia for about a week, Quito, then the Galapagos.

We did a lot of hiking and snorkeling, but unfortunately, zero bike riding. The weather in Patagonia (Torres Del Paine) was great for hiking, but would have been challenging on a bike … super windy much of the time.

I’m going back to Patagonia again. Love the mountains, the glacial lakes, the solitude, and the culture.

Drove to S. Jersey this weekend for some camping and riding and met this fellow. He’s a pet, not a main course.

Can’t say what happened to make this oak tree grow this way but it reminds me of a chocolate Easter bunny.

Pretty much missed the fall colors at the higher elevations … but there are still some at the lower elevations. This is Pine Creek Canyon in the Eastern Sierra.
