In 1993, after finishing college, my friend Chris and I rode across the US by bicycle. Just south of Hite, Utah he took this picture of me. The picture has been in my Dad's attic for about 15 years, the last time I saw it.



Last week while riding through the same area with my mate Chris, though a different Chris, I remembered that picture and tried to recreate it. Not too bad considering how long it's been since I last saw the pic, can't have been more than a mile or two out.



The ride may have changed, but the spirit remains the same.
