FIFES RIDGE - Sunday, July 11, 2004
Not a morning person, I wake late, then make preparations for my up-and-coming moutain bike foray up, across and down Fifes Ridge. The trail promises both great views and challenging ascends/descents. The day is a scorcher however, the heat sears its way into my brain and I become delusional as I make my way up the 2000 foot ascent. My upward peddling effort is paid back in triplicate as I make my way down the ridge, sometimes defying certain injury, maybe even death.
After the exhilarating bike ride I make my way to Seattle, WA. On the way to the city by the sound I stop for a photoshoot of Mount Rainier. In the process, I get a whole lot more, discovering ancient motifs that provide pictorial hints into a long lost civilization.
After my photoshoot I complete the drive up to Seattle. Upon arrival, I drive around for a bit, looking for an internet connection and a suitable place to van-camp. In short order, Seattle proves to be rich in both internet connections and suitable van-camping street sites.
Tommorrow I'll tour downtown Seattle by bike.
