The skies this morning were quite clear and steady, and despite needing to get out for a mountain bike ride, I decided that I had time to fit in a 30 minute look at the Sun. I am "training" to ride with some friends in the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo mountain bike race on Feb. 13th and 14th. You can count on an exciting blog entry should I survive the event. While the truth is that I will use any excuse to avoid early morning exercise, observing is my first passion, and I was quite content to delay the ride this morning and watch in close-up detail as the Sun thawed the desert.
