Today I went for a ride up The Blue Ridge Parkway. It was beautiful out and there wasn’t much in the way of traffic either.

I found an awesome trail that winded up the mountain along a stream. I didn’t know where it went but figured, what the hell. The risk paid off with gorgeous scenery and complete and total isolation from all signs of civilization.

You forget how beautiful all the greenery is, until winter breaks and spring finally comes. I even saw this little guy living it up under some fallen bark near the stream.

Man, I love the mountains.
