Awesome ride report! I must agree with one of the others regarding riding alone. It is much better than with a group. No asking,"What do you think about taking that road?", "Why are we stopping again?" or any number of questions that are asked while on group rides!
Keep doing what you are doing and wear a lanyard with your camera on it just in case you might need to drop it while taking a picture on the move!
You are discovering one of the great secrets of life that most people will never know!
