Like others before me (most notably, Jill) I decided to post a Best of 2011 in photos. These aren’t necessarily the most technically awesome images (and let’s be honest – I use a point and shoot underwater camera – artiste is not what I am after) but they represent for me either a positive memory from 2011 or more accurately, a feeling of being in a place – most often at home in Whitehorse.
No surprise, most of the images feature bicycles in some way. Next year I’ll have to try and have memorable adventures in dresses so I can post a few of those too.
January – Me and Mingus on Lake Laberge, new year’s day
February – Out in my neighbourhood trails with my new snow bike and my awesome Fat Tire Ballerina jersey.
March – My first ride out at Fish Lake with Tony and Sierra.
April – Maui. Surfing. I love that island. Is it weird to love two such different places (the Yukon and Hawaii) so much?
May – Early season ride with friends. This one I love because Monika’s smile expresses how I usually feel hanging out with these women.
June – 24 Hours of Light Mountain Bike Festival at midnight.
July – Whitehorse’s first DH race from the top of Grey Mountain. My dog, my man. Good things.
August – Leg 3 at the Soggy Bottom 100. Kind of a horrible ride, to be honest, but still an experience to learn from. And probably an event to go back to.
Sept – Mountain Hero in the fall. Most epic, beautiful ride in the Yukon.
October – View on my way to work. I am trying to commute by bike more often.
November – View at sunrise in Vancouver. I just love the light in this one.
December – Sierra at noon. Bike, friend, a successful fat tire event. Not bad.
Happy new year, everyone.
