Paved with Gold

“Anyone could see the road that they walk on is paved in gold
It’s always summer, they’ll never get cold
They’ll never get hungry, they’ll never get old and gray
You can see their shadows wandering off somewhere
They won’t make it home but they really don’t care
They wanted the highway, they’re happier there today, today”

Fastball – The Way Lyrics 

Today was incredible.

Met Jerri and Melinda early and we drove up to Turkey Flats. The leaves had turned golden and fallen to the ground days ago, but this meant the trail was gold, the sky was blue, and we couldnt’ have asked for more perfection.

It was so fun riding with these girls! We practiced several obstacles that we hadn’t had success on before, to great reward. We laughed and joked and sang and made animal sounds, and absolutely flew down the trails.
