I've been distracted from blogging for the last couple of weeks as I've been preparing to change jobs. I've been transferred to the Flagstaff Airport into a position I'm excited about. I start on Monday but have not yet seen my new office, which I am told, has a great view of the San Francisco Peaks that is particularly breathtaking when the mountains are covered with snow.
Getting to work will be a snap as our house is a mere 8 minute bike ride up the road. I'll be able to store my Breezer inside the terminal. Pulliam has bike lanes and an urban trail path. Unfortunately, the FUTS is usually not plowed so I plan to get some snowshoes in the event heavy snow makes biking to and from work unmanageable. How many people can actually say they snowshoed to work?
I'm a little concerned about how the change in my work location will affect my blog content. City Hall is downtown where most of my bike commuting photography takes place. I'll be forced then to seek out other locations most likely on the weekend, though if I am lucky, I find some interesting subject matter on the FUTS before and after work. Just two months ago I just missed a black bear siting according to a passing pickup truck driver who stopped to warn me and a couple of dog walkers who had happened upon it on the forest near the trail.
In other news, the Planner Guy and are will be taking a short trip to Colorado later this coming week. I will have camera and laptop close by. I anticipate more mountain biking than bike commuter culture where we are headed but I'll let you know either way.
