I can see it’s going to take me some time to take this town in.
A fine morning: I put in some work, and then headed into the woods. Hops and I took a short hike and I rode some trails in the Bent Creek Experimental Forest, which (as far as I can tell) is part of Pisgah National Forest. The trails were not terribly technically challenging, but the climbing was a challenge for me. And descending so fun!
For comparison I went back and looked up a similar picture I took in 2015 or thereabouts…
I put in some more time reading (oh, this life) and then met up with some friends for dinner and drinks – Larry, from just last week, and our friend Velicia are in town for a conference this coming weekend.
And I spotted this list of live shows coming up, which is part of what’s making it hard to leave town.
Good problems, friends. Good night for now.
