Stuck in Second Gear...

This seems to be the season for doing, not for writing.  Yesterday was Thai Father's Day and though I am not a father I took the excuse to ride the Ninja over the nearby mountains.  Followed a route that included Phu Chi Faa and Pha Tang.  I toyed with the idea of calling this post "Lost in the cabbage patch" but "stuck in 2nd gear" seemed more appropriate as I was literally in second gear much of the day.  One section I actually did in first gear to make sure I didn't stall on the super steep hairpins.

I guess the mountain kids don't get a holiday on Father's Day.  With the onset of winter and the seasonal burning it is hard to get good photographs through the haze.  I still like to try, however.
