A Ride to Cliff New Mexico on Mother's Day

Monday, May 14, 2012

Maggie and I decided that Mother's Day would be a great day for us to take our final long ride before we taper this next week. The 21st we are riding the Santa Fe Century in Santa Fe New Mexico. Maggie is seen above sporting her new Tour of the Gila Sprinters jersey.

I managed to take one picture of Maggie before she got my phone. Unfortunately, she got to take two pictures of me. Tough phone...I didn't break its' camera. LOL
We got to see a small forest fire caused by lightening. The fire is un-manned and burning just below Bear Wallow Lookout.

I know, it just looks like clouds. Not much of a fire, thankfully as the area is extremely thick with tall pines, Aspens, and other assorted vegetation.
On the ride back to town..or towards where we parked, we got to see the early afternoon clouds starting to roll in. Thunderheads can be inspiring and I realize that these clouds were dry, but they give hope for what might someday come. Enjoy!

Hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day!

    Your jerseys look really cool!

Thanks for the photos. I love seeing how different everything is out in the west. We've had drizzle for the last few days. I would totally send that your way.
