After finally getting settled (somewhat) down here in Lexington, Kin-Tuckie I decided to get out on my 9er and do some old school exploration. Just picking a turn onto a road minutes from my apartment, I found myself immersed in some gorgeous and gently rolling countryside. Now I've seen some beautiful country in my day; snow capped peaks of the Rockies, rolling hills of the Midwest, Arizona desert, even the barren Chilean Andes and surrounding wasteland, but there is something about these hills and backroads of Kentucky. Twisting country roads, Horse Farm hill country, and blankets of colorful trees all under the Golden October sun just seemed to speak to me. Many times widening my eyes and kindling a fire in my soul, this countryside seems newly explored yet comfortably reminiscent of many other rides I've taken.
Even though the drive wasn't a terribly technical trek, (could've been if driving faster) I didn't care. I just cruised around taking in the scenery to my left, right, and in front of me as I made my way through some new sights and experiences. I can't wait to make it a little farther east and into the Appalachians, in fact I just planned a 6 hour trip for a nice upcoming weekend.
Enjoy the pics!
Nice pics, Our tree's are still green here. No coconuts on the palms like in South Florida, but the air temp has dropped into the 60's at night so the colors won't be to far along.
60's temps are soooooo much nicer than upper 90's and above with 90% humidity. Almost time to hang up the mesh and break out the leathers!
