Playing in the Aspens

I'm on the road for the 2nd straight week. Last week was a short trip to LA, this week a long stay in Toronto. I only had time in California for a couple amazing vegan meals and a hit of perfect weather. In Canada, the weather has been cold and rainy but we've done a lot of walking around the city to some interesting restaurants.

I'm looking forward to getting home and enjoying a few more mountain bike rides before winter arrives for good.  The last few weeks, we've seen the aspens take center stage! We've started riding our road bikes on the trainers at night, but the weekends are all about MTBing. The following photos pick up where the September Single Track Adventures blog left off.

The latest murder in my life isn't in a novel, but in my neighborhood and it is causing stress rather than relieving it.

This murder occurred on a Friday morning in September. I actually didn't hear about it until last weekend when my friend Tara mentioned it. I immediately jumped online to read the reports and comments from both strangers and neighbors. Take a moment to read about this murder and investigation.
