Amazing Picture of Cyclist’s Leg Veins

Many of us have probably had the experience of having blood drawn and having the technician ask us to make a fist. What does making a fist actually do? If you make a fist, it increases the prominence of the vein.

If pumping a fist does that, what can we assume happens to the legs of a cyclist in race such as the Tour de France?

Pickleball: Third Shot – Drop Shot May Not Be The Best Option


*** NOTE *** If you do not know what the third shot drop shot is, watch this video – HERE – before reading further.


**********

Once we transition from beginning pickleball and head more toward the intermediate or above skill level, the third shot drop shot becomes a goal of many players. This can be a wonderful shot if you can execute it reliably. Even then, however, you shouldn’t use it all of the time.

Phyl Dunmeyer and host of Pickleball 411, Rusty Howes, explain why there are at least three situations during which the third shot drop shot might not be the best choice.

Hiking: Yellow-Throated Gilia, Sequoia National Park, CA

One of the reasons I enjoy hiking is that it offers opportunities for interesting discoveries; some anticipated and others serendipitous. We were hiking along the Crescent Meadow Loop Trail in Sequoia National Park nearly a year ago when we came across a patch of wildflowers tucked away in a wooded area…

It was hard to believe that these were real. The colors were so vibrant and unusual in combination. It was an amazing sight. The next day we were on the Sunset Point Trail and there was a large swath of these wildflowers covering the entire hillside.

Love those standouts adding their all white accents in the middle of the patch!
