blood red moon over bosco's boneyard
Tonight the air quality was really terrible and the humidity was intense, but it made for a dramatic appearance of the full moon about halfway through the ride, turning it a shade of red. Going out at night heightens the senses- you become more sensitive to the noises, smells and changes in temperature. Moving through the forest on a bike becomes more demanding as your depth perception gets completely distorted and you can only see about twenty feet ahead.
After riding on single track for about half an hour, I came out into a meadow. Something large moved. A second later a deer leaped in front of me. I was a bit scared we might collide.
Bosco's boneyard isn't really as scary as it sounds. It's named after the trail maker's dog who had a habit of burying bones along the way.
