Soul Food

I have been hungry lately, not because I haven't been eating well. I have been eating well, maybe too well as evidenced by this picture....

Carrot cupcake with Pineapple Ginger icing -VEGAN:)

The food I have been craving and starving for is the kind that while you feel it in your butt, you burn calories. I have had a hankering for some adventure. Luckily for me I have great friends who go along with my ideas (most of the time).

Over the weekend instead of heading out and doing a bike ride on known route with known mileage we went the road less travelled. There are many roads that we have passed and wondered where it went. Saturday we found out, most of them went up!

Up and Up, sorry can't get it to rotate

We had no idea where roads came out but we had an app for that, or so we thought. The app didn't show gated, no trespassing or be prosecuted by penal code blah blah blah. Most of the roads we tried that went up dead ended at gates. Big heavy gates with really important signs, some even had cameras. Head back down try the next road. Go in circles and keep coming out at the same place. Luckily, this was the kind of exploring that involved corner stores, so unlike Lewis and Clark on their great expedition we did not have to slaughter a buffalo to survive, or live off wild mushrooms in our vegan case. We did find some yummy treats for our donut favoring riding partner, but alas instead of meandering in the hills with us he was on a serious ride. Too bad, these looked rather yummy!

Gold was discovered in them there hills!

Eventually we had exhausted all roads and had found no way out, no legal way that is so we headed back out the way we came and got to go down a long way, we really had gone up a lot of hills. Now when we pass by that certain road, we won't be wondering where it goes, we know it goes to a place where you can feed your soul.

'Not all who wonder are lost', sometimes it takes getting lost to be found!
