The clock is ticking. Only 16 days left 'til the end of Daylight Savings and the clocks turn back an hour. Although it gives us a little more light for the morning run, the post work outings are pretty much kaput after November 1. And that is a bit of a bummer because this time of year is the best for getting out in the Grand Valley, what with the weather so fabulous and the leaves turning. So I have made a Fall resolution. Like a New Year's resolution, but applying to the next two weeks only: I will attempt to get out and do something every day after work. I made my Fall resolution just this afternoon. So this evening I rode up to Cold Shivers Point in the Monument and then watched the sunset on Mount Garfield and the Bookcliffs as I descended. It was beautiful. The cottonwoods in the canyons are really starting to pop and the color show seems to be much better than the aspens in the mountains this year.
So the pressure is on. Right now is perfect and there are so many things to do before the clocks change - riding over the Monument or through the Palisade vineyards, mountain biking at Mary's, 18 Road or Lunch Loop, running the river trail, hiking in McInnes Canyons or Mount Garfield.........whatever it is, just get out there!
