“Miles of Trails”

Miles of Trails

Show Notes

Episode: 5 · Aired:
Approximate Runtime:

From sunup to sundown, there's always a tune to match the destination. There may be as many songs about riding a particular trail as trails themselves; songs of inspiration, songs of reflection, songs of lament, songs to make it one more mile. When they reached their destination, seems they often sat down and wrote a song about the adventure.

These days a rider can pop in their earbuds while in the saddle, and nobody is expected to write a song when they reach camp at the end of the day, though it might be more interesting if they did.
