I hope everyone had a great weekend. I was able to cook my family a nice dinner Friday night of chicken scallopini, and I got in a nice long bike ride yesterday. I'm forward to the debut of "Game of Thrones" on HBO tonight over a cold beer. I subscribed to HBO for the first time just because of it.

My wife and I watched a Tivo recording of our favorite TV show, "Modern Family" and the most recent episode had a bit about prostate cancer. PCa wasn't the joke, but it played a part, and I hope it raised the awareness level at least a smidgeon out there.

If you're needing a little lift, here's a short video that I hope will do the trick. It was filmed in my general location:
vimeo.com/18135369 and a friend who lives right by the takeoff location sent me the link.

and if you want to see what my city looks like at sunset, here's another very short video by the same crew:
vimeo.com/18135548 .

Ralph, I bet you see some familiar scenery.

On both videos, I suggest enlarging to full-screen. They're HD so they can take it. And turn on the sound.

Cheers!
Galileo

Thanks for the video Galileo. Saw the show and have seen the sunset in Arizona. Mesa Verde might have the best that I have ever seen, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Not too different here either. We spent the weekend camped out in the desert. Here are the shots.

Glad you had a great weekend! There was an WWII era show going on in Laughlin, NV this weekend, too. We still went the other way but I would like to ride in some of those crafts.

There were a bunch of HealingWell-ers taking part in the fun stuff this weekend...

The shots were actually taken over two trips over the last 4 weeks including getting home this morning. It's an awesome OHV area about an hour north of Las Vegas...It was 95 degrees this weekend.

LOL look at my trip last weekend at was as low as 32 degrees...ALSO an hour from Las Vegas...

great pictures.

Reminds me of my summer trip around there in 1988 with three friends. We drove from SF to the Grand Canyon. On the ride back we drove through Utah and came across a Sahara like dune where there was a family with their three wheel bikes going nuts on the dune. We pulled off the road to watch them and then saw a rattle snake. Huge thrill for us as it was very foreign to us. How many rattlesnakes do you see on a trip like that?

David,
No snakes today. Just a lot of pretty sites. And there were lots of dunes. When it gets too warm here I start making the drive to the Utah mountains. Great riding country there too...
