Happy 22nd, Carol!
Today I went up on a bike ride, it took me over an hour to go 10 miles :p Yesterday I made it in 55 minutes, but this time I stopped a few times and took pictures.
Here are some of the pretty parts around here.
There's a swamp not too far from here, there's a sign about it being a wildlife something or other.
It's kind of dreary looking on an overcast day! Any day, in fact :p
Just for fun, a shot opposite the side of the road where my bike was sitting.
I stopped to get some of the yellow flowers you can see in the field in the first picture. There were so many things I wanted to stop for, but it would have taken forever.
For some reason I really like roads that are in the woods and just go out beyond where you can see them. Straightish woodsy roads with a curve at the end are especially fun. Who knows what's around the corner!?
There was a section of woods that looked SO green on the trip yesterday (which is part of the reason I went back today) but for some reason it didn't look the same today. Different lighting, maybe. Some of the trees are tall - too tall to get a picture of the whole tree at that close of a distance. I tried lying on the ground to get a shot from the bottom up, but there was too much backlight and it didn't look too well anyhow.
Guess who's bike that is ;)
A local pond.
Ahh..the tops of trees :D
