What makes this girl happy...

...is making it back to the car safely without getting struck by lightning in a ridiculously fierce downpour.
The woods were odd when we started out...dark and humid and swampy and soupy and kinda gross.
"I can hardly see!" I said.
Approaching the area where I crashed a few (three?) weeks ago, I took a deep breath and charged ahead.
The storm began shortly thereafter.
Hustling through the trees, the rain came steady and quick.
Lightning, thunder, lightning, thunder...
"Just ride!!"

I don't like being in the woods when there is lightning.
Does anyone?
It was a great ride.
Friday rides make this girl happy.
