Sarah Snapshot

July 17, 2013  •  2 Comments

2013-07-17 09.46.59a Today's image is a snapshot with my phone camera. An objective with many of my photos is to tell a story but often it is the story behind the picture that needs telling. On my morning ride I stopped at Bridgewater Corner's for a snack and met Sarah from Portland, OR. Having started in Portalnd, OR last May, Sarah was now headed west having reached Portland, ME last week. She began today's ride at 5AM and tonight was to be spent in Rutland. Soon she is ending this years biking journey in Ticonderoga, NY with family - to go backpacking. And she has been riding solo. We all have dreams of what we wish to do - and bicycle touring is Sarah's. Her blog detailing her adventure can be read here. Sarah, you brightened my day and put some strength in my legs as I biked up to Plymouth Notch.

Sarah is what we would all hope for--have energy. Good for her. We have made reservations to go to Louisville, KY to watch our grandson on his ironman pursuits the last of August. Not sure what all it takes in but he practices his trade or talent each morning on a very long bike ride through the mountains in upper GA. This will be his fourth run for the record or just for the fun of it if that is how it comes down. Just to see people like Sarah and Taylor, makes me realize how life can pass you by quickly if you don't make things happen.

Wow - what a bicycle ride ... did she start in May 2013 or May 2012? Look at her strong legs! It makes me homesick for the dusty old mission trail.

Dave, thank you for sharing Sarah's adventure.

Dale is riding his bicycle from Show Low AZ to Vail Colorado. He left Friday and the past three days had a killer mountain climb in heavy rain from Towaoc CO to Placerville CO.
