Dog Lake


Distracted by nature.

That’s not so bad, really, is it? You can be distracted by other things, worse things, unnatural things. The cure for all of those is: get out and ride.


Anyway, on this ride, the point was to race the sun. We ended up coming down the mountain in the dark. On a few of these pictures you can tell it was getting dark. Some of them don’t really show how dark the day was getting. Regardless, the scenery is beautiful.


Oh, and by the way, dog not included.


And then it was, “Good night.”


How we got down safely was the first guy in our line had a light. He said he ended up blinding some hikers that were coming up as we were going down. His light was really bright. But when I passed those hikers, I saw they had their own lights. Headlamps. We weren’t the only ones enjoying the end of the day on the mountain. We weren’t the only ones lighting up the trail.

This is where I'm supposed to brag about how I've written seven novels, twelve screenplays, thousands of short stories, four self-help books, and one children's early-reader, but I'd rather stay humble. You can find out about things I've written or follow my barchive (web archive, aka 'blog) at or follow me on twitter @kurt_gailey. I love sports and music and books, so if you're an athlete or in a band or you're a writer, give me a follow and I'll most likely follow you back. I've even been known to promote other people's projects.
