Flat Creek ride

December 14, 2012  |  Outdoors  |  Comments Off on Flat Creek ride

I got a new bike in October..a Yeti SB95.. and lately I have been riding almost all the time.. which is super fun and entertaining.. but it is not conducive to Photography or carrying my DSLR and long lenses.. Also.. it seems no one ever stops long enough to take photos.. hehe…These shots are from my little cam, taken at Flat Creek Ranch which only opens occasionally for the public. So Of course.. I made that opener.. riding here with the Austin Ridge Riders.. Wes and Adam. Super fun!
