Today was a brisk fall day in Provo. Karl and I spent most of the day doing chores like laundry, and fixing the car. In fact, just to quickly brag about my amazing husband, Karl fixed both the driver side window, AND he was savvy enough to fix the AC blower! He was amazing today, really he out did himself.
Our friends Krysta and Zac are bike enthusiasts to say the least. They love their bikes so much they actually sold their car to have “one less car” in the world. They are awesome. All summer they have been inviting us to go and ride the Provo River Trail, or the PRT. Well, today we finally did it. We took our first ride on the PRT from our house to Utah lake. Yes, Utah lake. We don’t have bikes, but luckily Zac and Krysta have an armada of bikes for us to choose from. (Today they bought #12 and #13. And those are just the bikes in Provo).
We passed beautiful houses and farms, fields with cows and people onn their evening walks. We went under bridges, and over streams. It was a ball!
Our trip home was a little tougher. We took a different route and there were more hills and such. The view of the mountains was wonderful, and it really gave me a sense of how far we had really ridden.
On our way home we stopped at Dell Taco for dinner. The whole day was a blast! All together we road around 10 miles, pretty impressive. We really do want bikes…maybe next summer.
