IMG_6385Recently my husband and I decided to go on a ride on our dual-sport bikes into the New Mexico mountains between Chama and Tres Piedras. Perfect distance–not too long, not too short.IMG_6389

My husband is famous for transporting unlikely things by motorcycle. Like the time he brought me a dozen red roses in a vase inside his motorcycle jacket. So, while I envisioned a couple of sandwiches, some fruit and water, he prepared barbecued ribs, roasted corn, deviled eggs, bolillos, and watermelon. It was a delicious picnic with an awesome view of the mountains and valley below.IMG_6393

It was a little breezy and cool on top, but really a perfect ride. This is a great destination  for those suffering from the August heat.  When done, we decided to venture further and found a great backcountry road in the Carson National Forest. It was warmer there, the road was in great shape, and peace and solitude abounded. This is an area we plan to return to.IMG_6394IMG_6397

    What an amazing way to enjoy the beauty of the world. That is so nice that you have an area so close where you can ride and picnic. I wish I had the courage to ride, so many accidents around here, it is way too scary. Gorgeous pictures, thanks for sharing this amazing day with us.

      FYI, I don’t ride during the time we spend in Mexico. In fact, I mostly don’t drive at all there. My reflexes are not fast enough. There are driving laws but they are not usually followed. Instead they follow their own rules, and it is more dangerous to not follow those customs, regardless of posted laws, because that is what other drivers are expecting. For example, a two lane highway is really three lanes. You drive on the shoulder and people go both directions in middle of the road.😱
