Due to many brush fires in the basin yesterday the air was too smoky to ride or run or even just sit outside. Sometimes rest days are imposed naturally(/arsonally.)

This helicopter flies over my house every day - twice. It goes to the mountains in the morning and it goes home in the evening. It is the Search and Rescue helicopter. It is big and it is loud and it is badass. Sometimes I see it when I’m up in the mountains, too. When it comes unexpectedly thundering low over a ridge it can give you quite a start. They’re mostly out doing training exercises, but I suppose they deal with all manner of emergencies, too. Props to this chopper and its crew (no pun intended.)
