MTB: An Exploratory Ride at Wilder Ranch

I took today off, but wasted the morning doing nothing at home. I needed to go to Pescadero to pick up an Olallieberry pie. Well, it’s not too far from Wilder, was it? I call it an exploratory ride, but I set out to ride the trails that I had not ridden before. I also took my time to stop and take pictures of a little alligator lizard. The ride started out on a fire road through big meadows, but later, the trails led me into thick woods. The contrast was interesting.

The alligator lizard. It did not move, although it didn’t look dead either. Maybe it’s just sleeping.

Very different landscape.
