Big Sur Tour

How I managed to not post this for months I’m not sure. I guess life got in the way once I got back from this fabulous bike tour in the Monterey-Salinas-Big Sur area. My travel companions were Rick Gunn and Gary Cronk…we went at a leisurely pace and enjoyed every last section of the ride. We were treated to really amazing weather…the sun was in and out of the clouds. There was light rainfall sporadically throughout the day, but only one segment where we really got wet. I strongly recommend riding this in the spring…it will be way too hot during the inland portion much later than early June.

Day 4 was unbelievably gorgeous, but don’t linger like we did! The climb to the top of the coastal range will drain you but you get the reward of a really fun downhill to Highway 1. It was after 3 PM by the time we turned north on the coastal road and the headwinds just killed us all the way up to Pfeiffer State Park. My recommendation if you are riding fully loaded…stretch this out to six days. Too much fun regardless!!

Red Rock Burros

I decided to escape the never-ending Tahoe winter for a few days of mountain biking outside of Las Vegas. I was with my good friend Kevin Cannon and my dog Taz. As we approached the end of the Blue Diamond loop, Taz was the first to encounter a burro that was on the trail ahead. As I caught up, I pulled out my 5DII and 70-200 to see what kind of shots I could get.

As I was lining up shots of the burro with the mountains in the background, Taz alerted me to the other approaching animal. I grabbed a few more still photos, but as their activity increased, I decided to switch to video on my 5D to show all of the amazing movement that I was witnessing.
