I feel so full of sympathy for the northerners right now, with harsh, brutal conditions holding reign over most of the country. If I were living in Vermont or Illinois or Minnesota or Washington (or even Kentucky, amazingly enough), I certainly wouldn’t be out biking right now either, and probably wouldn’t be out walking any further than the nearest coffee shop. But then I probably wouldn’t be even doing that either, what with Covid. I’d just be sitting indoors, obsessing over the news and wishing I could be somewhere sunnier and warmer.
To help you pass the time while you’re shut in, here are some photos of our drive-thru visit to Organ Pipe National Monument, about ten miles north of the Mexican border. No bikes, hardly any walking, just some warm sun and fantastic scenery. Wish you were here.
