Hood Mountain

Only eight miles?!? It felt more like a hundred, given the steepness, heat, and swarms of gnats attempting to take up residence in my eyes, ears, nose, and mouth.

Not having bicycled through Hood Mountain Regional Park in almost three years (although I hike there far more often), I decided it was time to give it a go on the Ogre. That meant I would be pushing the bike as much as I would be pedaling it, because the park is nothing but hills (more like mountains, say I) and the trails are nothing but steep.

They call me Old Grumble-Face. I have no idea why they do that....

    Beautiful photos, as always, and those reflection ones particularly.
    Yikes on the crash! And yes it happens so fast there is no reaction time.
