    Photo Friday Nov 22- Crop Circles

    Soccer.tournaments.suck.

    4 trips to Red Mountain Park and back from Scottsdale.

    *sigh*

    Sunday we made the best chicken salad possible. Wife's route to Mesa on the road bike at 6am in pink, mine on the mtb back home in green: top of Las Sendas mountain->Tower Loop->out to tequila tree->Mine Trail->canal across the res->Pima path.




    Tequila Tree had nearly a full bottle of El Jimedor gold, so i took the nearly empty bottle of El Jimedor blanc. Its a long dull ride across the canal.




    Crossing Rt. 87 I had to cross the Tempe IronMan course, and peeking my head into the lane nearly caused a bunch of alien tridorks to come out of their tucks and **** their compassion socks. My nose was the most technical obstacle your average tridork will ever face, and it caused the closest Maricopa Sheriff's Deputy to tell me I needed to ride back down the B-Line to the next crossing, against traffic, on a separated highway reduced to 1-lane. m'kay, that sounds safe. I nodded to the officer then bolted through a hole and down the canal path. #breakinthelaw!

    the canal is worth riding!





    A brand new extension to the the mup at 92nd/Shea. Currently about 100 yards short of Cholla Drive but navigable through the dirt. path is cut and in progress extending to underpass at Cactus\96th. This will remove about 1.5 miles of unpleasant traffic. Also is an excellent spot for a safety break.



    reading books in the car makes all the commuting fun for *somebody*

    Full moon rise over what is left of Horseshoe Lake.



    208-pic composite image looking towards Phoenix from Humboldt Peak.



    I went to Humboldt hoping to catch comet ISON in the pre-dawn hour, but the clouds had other plans. At least I was given a glorious sunrise!

    I haven't been taking the camera on the bike lately so no bike images this week. I have, however, been trying to get photos of Comet ISON. It wasn't as easy as I hoped because of the full moon and twilight both interfering. These were taken using a DSLR on a fixed tripod -- no fancy astrophotography equipment was used.

    -db-


    Composite image -- and some of the stars don't quite line up -- taken on two consecutive nights
    showing how fast Comet ISON is moving through the sky.




    Full-frame image showing the small point of light that was Comet ISON -- and it wasn't even
    visible with the unaided eye. It required this longer exposure to show up. Down in the lower left
    corner is the planet Mercury.

    You really need to upgrade pedals. You still have reflectors in your spokes too?

    That photo reminds me of last January on Indian Bend Wash. When it went down to less than a foot, it was fun to ride through SLOWLY. I did wait until it went down mind you.....

    Yeah, an upgrade would be good....maybe I can get a sweet deal tomorrow on Jenson USA. Both of my reflectors fell off.

    Which reminds me of riding at FINS at night....looks like diamonds with all the reflectors littering the side of the trail. Just thinking about all the Wal Mart bikes that have been taken up there.....=0}
