Dad and I met up for an extended ride home this evening. By “extended,” I actually mean we added 25 miles to a 20-mile commute. Perfect… and my toes even defrosted in the shower. We didn’t set any land speed records, but I find it difficult to keep up a fast pace when it’s pitch dark and the temperature hovers around freezing. We still had a nice time.
We rode south through Bellevue to Factoria, over Northup Way into Issaquah, and then around the south end of Lake Sammamish. A straight shot north took us directly home.
Clear skies and light clouds settled into a luminous sunset. My only regret was that I didn’t stop to take more pictures. (Note to future self: Remember that.) We did, however, stop at the south end of Lake Sammamish and take a few pictures as the sun dipped below the horizon.
