Coasting Along

my first-ever coastal ride

Just before the deep freeze hit Colorado, we spent a day at the beach, riding right above and along the Pacific Coast, a first for both of us. It wasn't a high mileage ride, but it was a photographic paradise.

We saw what we think was a seal or sea lion, and then The Lizard saw a bobcat during his climb of Hazard Peak! Not often you get to see that combination of animals in just a few hours of time!

  1. That is quite the interesting beach, a little rocky though it seems

  2. Wow, you've made me miss the Pacific.

    What a gorgeous ride. The Overlook shot is my favourite. So glad you guys got to do this! :)
