On The Road With "Olivia"

Adventures on a Folding Bike

Air Quality Alert.

I woke up this morning to heavy smoke in the valley. We have several fires in California bringing a great deal of smoke into the Eastern Sierras. As a cyclist, these high AQI days are a problem. Fortunately I am in good shape- no heart or lung issues- and can deal with this. However,  I have to drink a lot more water to overcome the effects of the smoke.

Sunrise through the smoke at Lake Topaz. Yuk!

    Even tho the air was thick with smoke, the sunrise was still spectacular! Even bad days can have a glimmer of beauty/hope!

      I agree that the sunrise shot was spectacular. It’s not bad except when you have to breath it!

        Breathing is overrated when there is a sunrise as gorgeous
        as this one, and the one today!

    I was riding Olivia today at work this morning. The air was still pretty smokey. I had a hard time breathing as I was climbing up one of the steep hills. The smoke was awful and I didn’t even have a pretty sunrise to look at! 8^(

      I am sorry, Toots! Be glad that you aren’t at work today as the AQL (what does the ‘L’ stand for?) is worse! YOu can see the brown/grey in the sky floating around like a giant blanket. Its awful! Today you can ride Oma in the house and watch Holland go riding by.
