Another Type Of Scavenger Hunt

Join the blogroll. Visit participants.
"On the Road"

Scavenger hunts are so much fun. I found this and decided to join in the fun. I haven't got all the links attached, but hope to by next Saturday's Scavenger Hunt.

Here is my "On The Road." I am on the road in Garden of the God's in Colorado. Pikes Peak mountain is in the background. Who would believe that I'm on the edge of a city.

Side Note added 9/3/06: Katharine Lee Bates wrote the lyrics to America the Beautiful after an inspiring trip to the top of Pikes Peak in 1893.

Wendy's Whimsies is holding her monthly casting call. Go and check it out fast, before it ends.

That's a gorgeous photo. I love to see mountains in the background, where I am now is so flat compared to where I grew up. Just beautiful.

thank for your visit! I'll see ya next weekend. :)

Dawn said...

I love your pictures with the mountains in the backgroud! Such beautiful shots!

I'm so glad you're doing the Photo Hunt! It is so much fun to see everyone's photos. Plus you make so many friends!

Hope you are having a good weekend and riding safe! Patt will get his bike back in a couple of weeks and he can't wait to get back on the road. As long as he has all his leather on ~ he's been told not to leave this yard without them esp after we just bought leather pants and had to get a new helmet since the accident :)

Have a good one and I'll see ya soon!

Really nice picture, looks like a great day for a bike ride!

Darlene said...

I love the name, "Biker Betty" --I'm reminded of a funny story. My sister Betty is one of a kind, who had a motorcycle too. One Easter, the church ladies had a "Ladies Tea" and were offering a prize for the best Easter bonnet. Betty wore here motorcycle helmet with a fancy church dress, and won!

Keep riding, Betty!

PresentStorm said...

This picture is awesome. I LOVE the mountians as the backdrop...Welcome to the hunt and thanks for stopping by :)

Zeus said...

How awesome is that! You look very rough and tough on your bike, and nothing can stop you. It's just you, your bike, and the open trail through the mountains. Vroom, vroom, baby!

Strangely enough, (and I'm sure you'll find this hard to believe!) I too visited the Garden of the Gods and Pike's Peak. If you're curious, you can read this for proof!

Biker Betty said...

Hi Tricia, Thanks. I love that I can see the moutains from my house (if I look out the right window, lol).

Hi Dawn, Watching you do the Photo Hunt looked like so much fun that I had to try it. Kind of down my alley, since I'm doing something similiar with my motorcycle riding group.

Hi Goofy Girl, A photo can never go wrong when taken at Garden of the Gods. It was a beautiful day that day.

Hi Darlene, Thank you for sharing your story about your sister Betty. I got quite a chuckle. My church had a had day for the ladies, maybe I should have worn my helmet too, lol.

Hi Presentstorm, thanks for stopping by, too.

Hi Zeus, I read about your visit here. You had quite an adventure here at Garden of the Gods and the Air Force Acadamy. That fighter jet ride looked like fun.

Rascal said...

Hello Biker Betty. Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm glad you liked it. Don't feel bad about your dog not letting you have a Cat. I wouldn't let my humans have a dog either.

Melli said...

Hey BB - I'm here from Wendy's actually! My hubby is a Harley boy... he would LOVE it if I was a biker too .... but this is NOT me! LOL! I take the occassional back seat though! Your bike is nice!

Biker Betty said...

Hi Rascal, Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Hi Melli, Thanks about the bike. I love it myself. My hats off to you. Many won't even ride on the back of a motorcycle. They are missing a lot of fun. :)

Pass The Torch said...

Great photo! Looks like a great place to ride.

Thanks for commenting on mine!!

Valerie said...

Great photo! Here from Wendy's place today.

Tricia said...

I'm back again! Came from Wendy's. Oh I'm so jealous that you can see the mountains from your windows. sniff sniff :(

Bright idea ... maybe I'll paste mountain landscape posters to my windows so that everytime I look at them I'll see mountains? What do you think?

Tanya said...

Hi there... l love bikes.. I have owned 3 - pre children :) I have just started studying as an adult student so I am hoping to get one next year. I also want an old Trumpy to work on in the garage so when I am a granma I can tour NZ with the silver riders hehe.. great blog..
Its just as well wendy directed me here today :)

Biker Betty said...

Hi Pass the Torch, Yes this is a great place and I'm close to lots of other great places.

Hi Valerie, Thanks and thanks for the visit.

Hi again Tricia, or you can take an old window frame, mount a picture of mountains in it, hang it on the wall and place curtains on both sides. Walla, a new window with a view!!!

Hi Tanya, Wow, three bikes. Also, my hats off to you for going back to college. That is something I have been thinking about, but lazy to do. Plus I have a son in college already (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!! LOL).

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Thanks for the Visit, Betty...The Scavenger Hunt is coming to a close soon? WOW! I hope you win EVERYTHING!! (lol)

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Well, I ha a power outage up here on my hill, and it had just come back on when I saw your comment...Then, I went to Wendy, and she sent me back here! So....Yes, Wendy did send me here for my second visit!

Kailani said...

What a great picture!

Thanks for stopping by my site. I'm having internet problems so I can't participate at Wendy's too much. Hope you guys are having fun!

Tammy and Parker said...

I can see the mountain when I look out my window too. I can see them out of any window though. =)

Wendy directed me this way today and I'm glad she did!

Rascal said...

No wonder you use a bike to play Wendy's game. It has me going round and round and I think you and I visited oldoldlady of the hills about the same time. But here I am visiting you again too. I'm a good Cat that way.

Ma said...

That's a great picture of you on the bike with Pike's Peak in the background. Awesome! Thanks for stopping by my site.

Biker Betty said...

Hi Naomi, Yes, sadly the Mountain Shadow Rider's scavenger hunt is ending soon. Luckily, I found this Saturday's Scavenger Hunt to fill in, lol.

Isn't Wendy's Casting Call fun?

Hi Kailani, sorry to hear you're having internet problems. Hopefully it doesn't last long.

Hi Tammy and Parker, Thanks for stopping by. That is so neat that you have such a view of mountains.

Hi again Raschal, You and I are running around in circles, lol. I hope you're having as much fun as me. Try a motorcycle, you might get around faster, lol,

Sabapaks aka Jennifer said...

Hello Biker Betty!
Wow, it is great to know that someone else in Colorado knows of Wendy!
Lately I have been thinking about getting a scooter to save on gas to and from work, but am not sure how that would work out in the wintertime here in the Springs. I don't think I could actually handle a bike like you have but wow, I am glad that you can do it!
BTW, Wendy directed me here today.

Renee said...

Hi Betty! I'm here from Wendy's. We live just up the road from where your picture is.

One of these days I need to go up to the top of that mountain...done the garden lots of times though.

Renee said...

Back again from Wendy's. I forgot to mention that I can see Pike's Peak from DD's bedroom & her bathroom too if I stand on the side of the tub. hee hee

I can also see Mt Evans which we have been to the top of. I just got a HUGE idea...I should drag DH up there tomorrow. hee hee

Renee said...

it's me again!

Back from Wendy's

Jennifer said...

If you are getting windy and you are on a motorcycle, what the heck is happening to me walking as fast as I can?
I am also back from Wendys again and I am waaaaay behind you, lol, looks like you have been there 3 times to my one!
Jennifer aka Sabapaks aka Regina since this thing isnt changing my name after all.

Jennifer said...

Back again from Wendy's, Betty!
Maybe one day, if and when I catch my breath from this audition, I will find out how to "enhance" my blog like I see so many of you all doing! See ya back at Wendy's

Sabapaks said...

Hi Betty,
I am back from Wendy's too!
So you are saying, that if I click on something that I like on your blog or someone else's blog, that it might show up on mine?

How did you happen to stumble upon that?

Janet said...

what a beautiful shot!!! Thanks for visiting :-)

Sabapaks said...

I just read your post about disappearing ads... now you really got me wondering if I should "Click or No Click!"

Back here visiting from Wendy's again...

Samantha said...

Hi :) Love the Betty Boop, she's so cute! The mountains are beautiful! I live in Northeast Georgia, we have pretty mountains too. I came from Wendy's :)

Sabapaks said...

Gonna call it a night Betty, it was fun running behind your bike but my feet are blistering now. Maybe when I give them a rest...
This is my last stop from Wendy's tonight. See you soon
Jennifer

Tricia said...

Betty, you snuck in again while I was auditioning at Wendy's! I think I've visited you the most. :) That's ok though 'cause I love that picture.

Biker Betty said...

I love to post to each individual person, but there was a ton of postings in the last couple of hours.

To my Motorcycle Bloggers, I've been having fun doing a "Casting Call" at http://wendyswhimsies.blogspot.com/ which is also in my right sidebar under "Other Blogs." I've never done this before, so it's hard to explain. It's just fun to do and I've made some more blogging friends.

Some of the earlier posts were by people with the Saturday Scavenger Hunt. Lots of fun too.

Wishing Fun Adventures to all,
Betty :)

MysteriousLady said...

Nice bike! Pretty country too!

Here visiting you from Wendy's!

eph2810 said...

Way cool, girl :)...You are living already my dream. I am hoping that I will be able to travel the country on the back of a motorcycle...
Welcome to the pack...Have a happy and safe Labor Day.

mar said...

I am here via Wendy's but welcome to the photo hunt!!!! and have a happy day :)

The Q said...

I am so jealous, I grew up and started riding in Maine where there is some beautifull mountians and wonderful places to ride just 30 minutes away and now I live in Michigan and yes there are wonderful places to ride but I have to admit I miss the mountains and ocean.

The scavenger hunt sounds like a lot of fun.

Have a great weekend (what is left of it)

PS: hope your son starts to get more compfortable with dorm life...

Eagles Wings said...

That is absolutely gorgeous! My husband has been to Pikes Peak when he went out there for a men's conference.! Wow, I would love to travel that one on bike! (Honda Shadow-500) :-)

TNChick said...

I love the view of the mountains in the back.

TNChick said...
