But as I was pedaling my way down the gravel road, I kept looking to my left and up Beattie Gulch. Why not just go up there and see how far I can go? Would I run into snow? Would it rain and I’d have to go back? I answered these questions because I accepted the urge and headed up the road.
This is a gut-wrenching climb on a mountain bike, which can be fun if you’re into that kind of thing.
What started out as a grey dreary day turned out to be an epic emersion into beauty and perspective. Thank you Mountains.
