Cycling the Pyramid Lake Road

All photos taken on September 5, 2022.

Not yet done with adventure for the day, we decided to take a ride up Pyramid Lake Road to the end of pavement and beyond. Bear spray-check, water-check, tool kit-check, sense of adventure-check. Yup, we were ready.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. It actually reminded us a bit of a cycling trip we took across Edmonton very early in our marriage. We were just coming back from a long ride when we got caught in a cloudburst. We were laughing then as we got soaked, thinking of Neil Sedaka’s Laughter in the Rain, which kind of became our song for a while. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Happy Friday. Only 9 more sleeps…. Allan

  1. Indian paintbrush: you learn something new every day. Glad you stayed one step ahead of the weather. I think it’s always a good idea to leave a bit of something undiscovered when you know there’s gonna be a next time.

    1. That is the name to be sure. Not sure how politically correct it is. This forestry road was such a gift. We have looked at it for years and wondered what was down there. Now we know. Next time, we will go right to the end. Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan
