Eklutna weekend

Sometimes you just need to get out of town.
So on Friday night, I left with Jules and the Bike Monkee
to spend two nights in a cabin, 
and to goof around outside.

Saturday's ride was cold and wet, with
a mix of rain and snow.

 The trail wasn't always great, but we had
a hugely fun day, even after we ditched
our bikes in the woods and continued
on foot over our snow-covered route.

That night, during our post-ride drinking, 
the sun came out in an amazing way.

That's when Julie observed that such moments
are why you don't want for perfect weather 
to go outside. You just go out, she said, 
and hope the weather changes in your favor.

Truer words were never spoken.

I was out there in early April and it was amazing the whole time. Eklutna is one of my favorite places. The weather's never bad when the riding's good.
