A quick Christmas spin through the hills

24 December 16

A habit I must return to is taking my camera along when I pop into the hills for a spin. And so it was with this in mind my Olympus, my Kinesis and I have to spend a lovely pre-Xmas morning exploring more of the seemingly endless labyrinth of trails in Northern Thailand.

Now to relax and rehydrate.

Merry Yuletide all!!

Ten minutes from home is a beautiful playground of dirt trails riding through rubber plantations and skirting lovely little lakes

A seemingly endless ribbon of dirt roads winds through the hills and valleys and past villages of hill tribe people

Gravel roads abound in a most agreeable hue of red

The hills can be of cheeky gradients, 25% was the max this morning, a climb that causes brought about unsightly wheezing and dribbling - note to self, try to remain more composed

Endless hills and valleys to play in

And some cultivation in the form of an aromatic tea plantation
