Autumn in Asheville, 2016

Highway 151
We had fun riding through the colors on the Parkway. Asheville is a wonderland of beauty. The road felt good. I tried capturing the day with my new iPhone 7 plus. I like how I can freeze the moment, but of course there is more in that moment. The sounds, the feels. Life vibrating, alive. The sky was clear with billows of clouds, the air clean with autumn.

Another perfect day.

Biltmore Lake

The folks at Biltmore Lake subdivision near our home seem to be fixing the drainage of the Lake. The water level is very low and the new look is pretty dramatic. From the bike, we catch a bird's eye of what's going on there...

Downtown Asheville, Lunch at Heiwa Shokudo

Delightful ride today with a stop in Downtown Asheville...

And lunch at our favorite restaurant, Heiwa Shokudo.
Our Harley, parked next to our table

Very pleasant sitting outside together. Steven ordered his favorite, poki lunchbox.

Green Asheville

Everything is green on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Asheville today. We are sharing the road on this beautiful Spring morning with bicyclists.

Reeves Cove Sunset

When there is no one on the road, the photograph becomes poetry and a love letter to the day. The sun is setting and we are almost home. (As usual, my reflection is in the rear view mirror.) Here we are on the final mile, Reeves Cove in Candler, North Carolina. I feel tired, but satisfied. A good ending to another good day.

Good Day

Yes, it is a good day to ride...

Gold is the color of my spirit today. The sun shines like a holy beacon. The road again opens for us.
