Mountain biking on the Overmountain Victory Trail
God dropped another gem on me today. It was sunny and crisp so I busted out after church and drove over to Wilkesboro for another tour of the Overmountain and Shiner's Gap trails - my second mountain bike ride since blowing out my shoulder.
I found the Youtube video, posted above. It's a three-minute opportunity to come along for the ride and experience my favorite place to be on Sunday afternoons. I have a positive association with North Carolina fall and winter seasons; this year is no exception. Bright sun, crisp air and color in the leaves.
So here's the set up: Start the Overmountain Trail Youtube segment above; turn the sound to 0. Start the Youtube segment below, vintage James Taylor from 1972 singing "Carolina in my mind." Watch the trail ride, listen to James.
