Four Summits Challenge

Well today was something new, and I like new things. Today, I participated in the Four Summits Challenge. This was a supported group ride through the beautiful mountains outside Cascade, Idaho. Gorgeous roads: smooth as ice, freshly repaved after being damaged in forest fire, filled with sexy switchbacks. Gorgeous scenery: meadows that sprawl into forests. forests pierced with jagged slabs of granite. lakes mirror the ashen sky. grove upon grove of blackened poles that used to be trees stand over a carpet of luscious green regrowth. crumbling spires like the gates of Mordor, and a thin ribbon of black tarmac laced between them.

At the end, waiting for us upon our return: BBQ ribs. And bacon rice.
