I got home at about 10:45 this morning and decided that the bike could not sit idly by with such incredible weather. So I jumped on my silver mistress and just decided to go exploring. I went out passed paradise ridge and the road I was on eventually turned to gravel. Looked good so I kept going.

I found some nice windy roads out in the middle of nowhere. It just seemed to be getting nicer and nicer as time passed.
Then, while driving in any direction that looked interesting, I stumbled across a backway to Julietta. I am not from a around here so it was a fun find.
After passing through Julietta I noticed that there was a road going up the other side of the mountain. Since I didn't really have any time restraints I decided to see what it had to offer. Then I found this view.
And this bridge.
If you look close, you can see the ambient temperature displayed on my instrument panel. Yes, that is correct, it was a very comfortable 76 degrees down there.
Once I started heading home I didn't really stop for many pictures. But I decided to take a picture of the curvy road that I had been on earlier although the picture doesn't show it as well as I had hoped.
Then, I saw one more place where I had to stop at for a photo op.
The camera didn't really pick the color up very well, but those hills behind the bike are a lot greener than they look in the picture. It was such a good day that I didn't want it to end.

P.S. I still can't seem to figure out how to make the photos themselves show rather than the links.
Pain is weakness leaving your body.
