bucket list

I’ve had an interesting  life replete with adventure, travel, and mostly great stuff. Of course there have been occasional trials, tribulations and challenges, but I have a lot to be grateful for. And the journey isn’t over yet.

Because my life has been pretty full and mostly fun, I’ve never felt the need to have a bucket list.

Until now.

The other day was wandering around the Eastern Ontario Ottawa HOG Chapter FB page, when I came across this video recorded by Derek Milmine a little over a year ago. It captured my imagination and made me feel joyful.

The road is called Artists Drive; it’s in Death Valley National Park, which straddles the California-Nevada border east of the Sierra Nevada. According to the Artists Drive web page, the one-way drive is 14.5 kms long and is full of dramatic dips and sharp turns, which you may see for yourself in the video. The Drive page says:

“The colorful rainbow hills of Artists Drive were formed by volcanic deposits of different compositions. Artists Drive is beautiful any time of day, but the colors are most dramatic during afternoon light.”

I’d like to experience Artists Drive on a motorcycle. Challenges are: I don’t have a motorcycle. Yet. Nor do I know how to ride one. Yet. LOL.

But nothing can stop me from dreaming. Or from trying to make my dreams come true.
