Had a delicious ride today. It's quiet here now and when I look back on today and think about everything I saw, everything I smelled, everything I tasted, the evening air is almost eery. I am so lucky. I love to ride my bike; I love to. And today was a perfect day on the bike. I rode along the Spokane River to Lake Coeur d'Alene, and then rode along the north shore of Lake Coeur d'Alene until the trail ended at Wolf Lodge Bay and then rode back to The 'Kan. I smelled wild roses and syringa and wet bark of freshly cut logs. I saw tourists from the Resort, daddys with baby girls in bike strollers, retired guys riding shirtless with no helmet. I had a cheese sandwich on perfect bread, ice cold lemonade, perfectly brewed ice coffee, and peanut butter rice krispy treats. A sublimely perfect day. Just when you least expect it, how is it that life is so amazingly beautiful?
