A Great Weekend

We had a great weekend to kick off the summer season.  We drove north on Friday night.  On Saturday and Sunday morning Chris got up early and went fishing while I slept in.  I got a lot of reading done and then when Chris got back from fishing we walked to the neighbors cabin and went with them on a pontoon ride.

This is the closest thing to a sunset that I could get with my camera.  What a great day!!

On the drive home I decided to challenge myself with a bike ride so I asked Chris to take me on this trail that he had rode before.   We got home unpacked the truck and got a bite to eat, threw the bikes in the truck and went to the trail.  We met a friend there and he looked at me and asked one last time, "Are you sure you want to do this?"  I said of course and we took off.  A little ways down the trail I thought to myself, what was I thinking?  This ride was a little different than what I was used to.  We usually ride on the road and add a few hills.  This ride was VERY hilly and bumpy with lots of rocks.  It was what they call Extreme biking.  It was a challenge I put myself up to and I will not lie, I was not sure if I could finish it.  
This picture was taken a little over half way thru the trail.  Chris tells me the ride was about 8 miles. 

We are planning to do this ride again with a group of people.  If you would like to come along let me know.
