5 years ago today, completed the Blue Ridge Parkway + Skyline Drive north to south with my brother and super sag lady. 591 miles with just shy of 60,000’ of climbing. Perfect weather every day. We spent one night at my daughter’s house in Boone and the last night at my sister in laws house in Asheville. Very, very memorable week.



A nice downhill run into Cherokee.

The highest point on the BRP

The crew!

Nice shot!

Today in Marble Arch in London.

The horse head on the right is called 'still water' and is by Nic Fiddian-Green and has been in this location since 2011.

The herd of 21 bronze elephants are a new addition creating awareness of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Each of the life-sized sculptures is based on actual elephants cared for by the Trust. More info: https://londonist.com/london/art-and...es-marble-arch

A few miles north of Fruita, Colorado. These folks have very few neighbors, but take a lot of pride in their home.

These pics make me wish I had taken more photos, or any, when I was riding around the world. We didn't have phone cameras then! Lol
