When I’m in my car, I tend to listen to NPR or podcast or music. Anything to take my mind off traffic and make the trip feel shorter.
When I drive, I want to get to my destination as soon as possible. I seldom pay attention to my surroundings. I’m on auto-pilot much of the time.
On my bike ride this morning I heard frogs. Very loud frogs hiding in the brush just off the side of the road. Unlike the times when I drive, I enjoy finding ways to lengthen the distance of my bike route. With Cyclemeter I don’t worry about getting lost.
In the six years we’ve lived in Auburn, I’ve barely noticed this view of Mount Rainier just blocks away from our home until today. I pulled my bike off the side of the road and snapped this picture while the wild croaking continued.
