Pictures and Words

There is a saying that goes something like " A picture is worth a thousand words". I am not in any way trying to challenge or prove such a statement. I'm just pointing out that with all that a picture can say, there is much that it can not say. Things like: the sweet smell of rotting leaves and decomposing ferns. The feeling of salty, wind irritated tears mixing with sweat on my cheeks. The rhythmic knocking sound of a pileated woodpecker on a nearby tree. My pounding heart trying to climb a rock face at the top of a hill. These are all what make each mountain bike ride a chapter in an ongoing story; the story in the life of a mountain biker.

All the pictures in this post were taken within 5 minutes of each other, at one location, in the middle of a ride, on a cloudy fall day.

Hi there, I am the admin of the facebook page Bergen County Today.

I read somewhere about your stand on the management planning of the Ramapo Mountains County Park, specifically your stand on the development of mountain bike trails. Would you like to share your thoughts on the facebook page so that more people will be encouraged to participate?
