Theodore Wirth Park

Slim and I made use of a nice chilly Monday afternoon to get out on our bikes at Theodore Wirth Park. Theo Wirth is a trail that is truly unique in that it almost falls in the shadow of downtown Minneapolis. I can’t imagine there are many trails that allow you to hit dirt so close to a major metropolitan area.

The weather was brisk and the first bits of snow we’ve seen this year fell upon us while riding. But the leaf strewn trails were fast and we only saw one other rider the entire time we were there. It was great to be out.

I also made use of my new remote camera trigger and took my first ever self portrait mountain bike shot (see the last image). Of course I set the shutter speed a bit to slow and I ended up with a blurry shot. I’m hoping to go out again on Friday and give it another shot. I’ll try and take some close-ups of my setup as well.

The photos are nice and crisp. Fall is my favorite time of year for running, hiking, biking and the like. It’s just cold enough that you stay very comfortable in these high energy pursuits.

Nice. The b+w looks really nice during this stark time of year. Good on ya for getting out there and riding in the cold and the first Monday of the “dark months.”

Great Pictures! Was the camera on the last one on a tripod or did you have to stick it in a tree?
