At the gas station, this fellow decided to drive away while still connected to the pump. Apparently this wasn't his first time, as he knew exactly how to reconnect the hose.

There are sections of the Smiley Rock trail that are quite agreeable.

Ricky D in one of the not so agreeable sections.

No, that's just how I park my bike when I stop to take pictures.

Then I got attacked by Optimus Prime.
