Macro Desert Fun!

I Heart Macro - It's Sunday!
 
(As always,...click the photos to enlarge them)
 
 
Yesterday we went out to Canyon Raceway to let the "Masked Rider" have some fun on a real track.
 
 
 
He's usually just blazin' his own trails out in the desert, kind of practicing for the Baja races that he eventually would like to run in.
 
He said it was fun. He didn't ride the national track yesterday, just the vet-track because they were getting ready for a big race that's taking place out there today and so there were tons of kids riding, jumping, flying through the air,...making me nervous.
 
 
 
 
With the exception of a few other guys, he basically had the vet-track all to himself; which he said was awesome!
 
 
 
It was great watching him have so much fun and I loved trying to get pics (wish these would have turned out better - I might need a different camera than a point and click to get the type of pics I want).
 
I got to take in some lovely desert landscape, too. 
 
 

 
 
It's amazing what you can see in the cacti up close - see the ants?  They were running all over the place!
 
 
 
 
The "Masked Rider" and the hubby are going back out today to do some track-free, desert riding.
 
I won't be at the bottom of any hills or standing in the middle of a track trying to get pics, so he can ride with out me getting in the way this time.

How much you wanna bet he comes home and says, "Mom!  You should have seen it!  I got so much air and did the most awesome riding!"  Yep, that's how it always goes!!
 
I'm linking up with I Heart Macro
over at Studio Waterstone today.
 
 
 
 
The macro shots over there are always drool-worthy!
 
 

 
 
Until Next Time,
 
Peace, Love and Hangin' in the Desert!
 
 
 
 
Cheers,
