On Saturday mornings, I have biked with a new bike pal -- Dr. Scott, a veterinarian and vet school teacher who loves to bike slow enough to soak up all the views of Red Rock Canyon. Our paces are similar and we chat easily about everything from great bike routes to religion to people.
We were climbing the Red Rock Canyon scenic loop this morning, talking about how everything is about marketing and middlemen and Scott cracked," One thing man is good at is deceiving each other." But he followed it up by outlining the amazing surrounding red rock and white sandstone and green mountain scenery with his hand and observed, "But this is The Truth." Here, Scott and I hang out with a few bicyclists at the scenic overlook at the top of the loop.
