I decided to take the long way home last night…and I’m sure glad I did. You could taste summer in the evening air as a cool breeze helped keep temperatures perfect.
It felt good to ride out on country roads towards the mountains. There was nothing but Stallion and I, a bunch of deer, and one lone elk off in the distance.
As the sun started to set, I turned back towards home, and just sighed. It was a perfect evening.
Riding back in to our neighborhood, I could smell the grills going, with faint laughter and activity in the air. I put Stallion away, and started the grill for our own family dinner.
It really was a perfectly, perfect evening!
