The ride down Furker Pass and up the Grimsel has to be one of the most beautiful and exhilarating rides available.
Past the wall of the Rhone Glacier
Through the little village of Gletsch
Then up the Grimsel
Winding up to the lake at the top of Grimsel Pass
If that is not enough
Down the Grimsel
Then up the Nufenen Pass
What a day of riding it was.
In a few months I will be back in Europe
On the Mighty Breva II
More mountain passes some old some revisited.
The Primus Rally. The most un-organized, funniest, longest running, international Norwegian winter rally. Go there!

It is articles like these that remind me that I am a piecemeal adventurer. Could not imagine riding in this weather and these conditions.
often in the wilderness
the boundless plains
the culture of different peoples
of a land
of the wildlife
are the constant
like a beacon
colour and light
like life itself
cannot be diminished
This poem was inspired by travels in Kenya and Ethiopia
The colour and light of the animals
