This was the sky that met me as I left the beach on the bike a couple weeks ago.  Even though the rain threatened (and eventually soaked me), I could not resist stopping to take the shot.

Early morning breakfast on US Route 50 in blissful ignorance of its fame as the Loneliest Road in America.

This is the Border Inn, where accommodation is in Utah while the bar and slots are in Nevada!

I Swear…..

I’d just returned home from my trip to Kentucky, and had spent the previous 3 hours riding in the rain.  The light, and the shadows, and the raindrops on the windshield, stopped me in my (very wet, dripping )tracks.  My bike was dripping, too,  but it had brought me home safely and that, my friends, is all that really matters.

Come on over to Life on the Bike and Other Fab Things to see more images from my adventures on, and off, the bike.  Please check out the blogs of my fellow contributors to Monochromia, too!
