Smell the Flowers
You don’t even need to get out of your driver’s seat to smell the flowers as an overland triker. You become one with the environment along the road’s edge, and as long as it isn’t a grizzly bear, you can just reach out and touch it along the way. Here, a well known triker smiles as he sniffs some delicate purple flowers, and since I am not a botanist, I cannot tell the variety. Anyone with more knowledge than me, which is practically everyone, can leave a comment to this post identifying the mystery. There’s nothing quite as rewarding as pedaling along and touching nature as you travel through it. Out here, you are one with the natural world, not confined to a car where you are separate!
