Mr. Bear and I sipped our coffees while the sun came up. And there it was. The sun. With its energy and warm comfort.
That was all I needed and mounted my stead. Moki and I rode off into the sun.
Around the corner and climb, climb. Another corner and town is disappearing. Trailhead found. Bike symbol located.
I walked and walked. Jumped the creek 5 times. Watched for the Wilderness boundary sign.
Time was running out and darkness would come soon. Giving up on the boundary. Turning around. I’ll be back.
Good times on the Gardiner Bench
