Lovely Saturday for leaf-peeping and fishie watching!
So that's exactly what we did. Peeped at leaves and watched fishies. In the Uinta mountains of Utah - only about 45 minutes from our home we found this...
And to think we've lived in Utah for about 16 years..we still find new places to go. This time, it was one of Mr. B's co-workers that suggested Cascade Springs..and my co-worker suggested another place we'll need t try next time.
They are like mini-vacations. Close enough to home to be quite do-able and yet far enough from the day-to-day to make it really enjoyable.
We receive quite a startle..I like that word..startle..and I know I've said it before I just don't remember every writing it our previously..I like-y!
Oh, so we were on a quite narrow road uphill on a curve. There was a slight bend to the left and a truck coming down as we went up ...very close..very carefully, when all of a sudden we see a bicyclist come flying downhill passing the truck on the left...which made him on a direct line with us on the right going up, to be a hood ornament on my car!He squeeeeeezed in between and just kept on going..and all I could think of was my heart trying to beat out of my chest..it was awful!
Stopped at a little house/restaurant in Midway Utah and had a great salad and meatballs (ordered ala carte...not on the salad..) Grandma Evelyn had pizza and salad..Mmmm..
Then it was on home and a restful afternoon.
Hope yours was great and if you are a bicyclist or know a bicyclist, or want to become a bicyclist, please remember you are not the only ones on the road and yes, you do still have to obey the traffic laws. Besides, having an accident with one of you would severely interfere with my week-end plans.
Besides, I'd have to slap you around just for being stupid...
