Sometimes I wonder if life gets too bottled up with well, life… so much so that we forget to stop and “just breathe.”
Having time on the road has allowed me to do just that.
While the first few days were absolutely amazing with Mother Nature’s best eye candy on display, most of my attention was focused on the different learning aspects of the bike. From leaning into turns to downshifting, the bike gobbled up most of my time.
With a few days on the bike, I’m starting to feel a bit more comfortable with all the details and have been able to relax and enjoy myself.
My “ah ha” moment came after we left Ukaia and were in route to Sacramento via HWY 20, which rolls through several small towns and the gigantic Upper Lake.
We left bright and early and as we were coming down off the first ridge, there it was… the early dawn light, rays falling through the dewy mist and the light sparkling off the lake. It was, by far, the most awe-inspiring sight I’ve seen in a long time.
Life lesson learned: When life is getting a bit crazy… just breathe.
