Another secret night ride

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

On Tuesday night, Dave and I did another night ride. The moon was nearly full, the sky was clear, the air was crisp, and it was a beautiful night. We rode over 14 miles on gravel roads, logging roads, and a couple of brief paved roads. We followed a ridge down into a valley, where the air was much colder. We crossed creeks and cut quietly through the night air. And we did it all by moonlight. The moon was so bright that there was no need to turn our lights on. We had to go a bit slower, but it was well worth it. We had some surprisingly good views; once our eyes adjusted to the light, we could see quite well.

I spent a little more time than usual taking photos; here are a few.

    Nice photos. Were you using a tripod of some sort?

  3. Apertome Says:

    No tripod, I just set the camera down wherever I could. On a gate, on the ground, on my Camelbak … worked OK, but camera angles are limited.
