Photography from the Smith river valley and in an around southern Virginia.
Somebody buried a bike pump here for folks to use. Pretty cool feature at IC Dehart park. When I trained here there were no trails and I would surf the vast mowed fields. This is also the place where I krunked a rib after a fierce endo - grass was mowed straight across a ditch. This led to some confusion when the not yet famous Jerimiah Bishop misheard "rib" and offered to help me fix a "rim" instead. I got to check out his 17lb mtb before he smashed the course record at the poor mountain hillclimb, being challeneged by my kid the whole time. He only got away after the rotten bottom bracket on his clunker gave out and siezed. Bishop was shocked when he saw this after the race.
