Forester Road

I must come clean. Forester Road has gone neglected. In my wonderings and ramblings across the north Texas prairie, I’ve somehow missed the Forester Road vicinity. I understand that you expect me to keep up with things around here. So this morning’s reconn was an attempt at catching up.
It’s not a long road. But it has that delightful mix of hilltop open prairie with shade tree creek bottom. So I can have a nice variety within a short ride from the house. Why have I been away so long?

Rolling Terrain

Golden Winter Grasses

I don’t know if Rivendell’s Grant Petersen has ever been to rural north Texas, but sometimes it seems like he was personally thinking of me when he created the A. Homer Hilsen. The perfect Forester Road reconn machine.
Well, it seems that everything is in order along Forester Road. I hope you feel better now. I know I do.

  1. Chris,If Texas was just a bit closer to Vermont, I would have gone on that ride with you. It looks beautiful there and for a winter day, man!Your bike sits right at home in the landscape.Wil

  2. I do feel better… fact, reading your blog posts like this one always help me feel better. They are like short, peaceful, calming, bicycle meditations.

  3. I thought of your Blog today when I read where Thoreau had written in his Journal: "It matters not where or how far you travel – the farther commonly the worse – but how much alive you are" (May 6, 1854)

  4. Thanks for the kind words, fellas.Paul, yeah really, but not lately.Rat Trap Press and Greg, well, it's all about pleasure for me.William Boyd, I'll admit that Mr. Thoreau is a bit of an inspiration in some of my adventures.

  5. Y'all know that Chris has an ENDLESS supply of roads up there of all sorts, and he really just teases us with a new one once in a while to renew our amazement and whet our appetites for more. I think the word is – "tease." But it works really well.

  6. Hi there, I found your blog while searching for pictures of Texas in the fall. Love it! Would it be possible for me to use one of your images for a newsletter I’m working on? You would have full credit of course, contact me if you’re willing. Thanks!
