My buddy Jake hit me up the other day to see if I wanted to shoot some photos. I happened to be downtown already and since I keep my bike in the car at all times, it worked out. There’s a lot of fun spots to session in downtown Boise but one of my most favorite things to do is just cruise around, launch curb cuts and hop over random stuff. This curb launcher is on the corner of 6th and Idaho. Minus the zebra pants, this is what “street” riding is for me these days. I hit this thing just about every time I pedal through.
I missed out on last year’s inaugural Treefort Music Fest but I made up for it this time around with plenty of partying and shutter clicking. Here are some snapshots I collected from the weekend. Shout out to The Dedicated Servers for hooking me up with a pass and Pie Hole for keeping my camera safe when I had left it on their patio. That was probably the fastest I had ever ran in my life.
I woke up the other day a lot earlier than usual and when I looked out my bedroom window, I couldn’t see shit. There was a thick layer of fog draping over the city and my gut reaction was to drive up to Bogus to get above it. I had this image in my head of a picture perfect inversion, similar to the ones you see from airplanes. I was real excited about the trek since I’ve never seen a proper inversion like that in Boise before. I remember seeing it in the local news but that’s about it. I had never actually driven up there to see it myself.
Anyway, when I got about halfway up, I found this triple decker sandwich of clouds instead.
The roads were extremely icy this morning. I know this because when I checked Facebook, 90% of the posts on my news feed had something to do with it. I also got another hint when I heard a loud rumble in front of my house. I ignored it at the time and didn’t think much about it. It wasn’t until I was heading out for lunch that I realized what had happened.
I live on a relatively busy road, right after a curve. Garbage day was yesterday and I was too lazy to take the cans back in last night so I left them out by the sidewalk… This morning, somebody accidentally played bowling with their car and scored a strike with all three of my giant garbage cans. I’m assuming everybody was ok since I didn’t hear sirens after the rumble. I do, however, kinda wish I would’ve seen it.
