CSI Challenge 164

This challenge over at CSI was great fun. As soon as I saw ‘transport’ I knew exactly which photos I wanted to use.

It’s a fairly simple layout but that’s my style and I like to let the photos tell the story.

Since we don’t usually see snow in the beautiful Barossa Valley we can’t do normal sled racing. In most parts of Australia we do dryland racing, either with a scoot / kickbike or on a mountain bike. I choose bikejoring on the mountain bike as it is easier than ‘scooting’ ūüôā

This is young Scout on a solo run (she usually runs as a two dog team with her father). She loves the forest and the running!
