cycling (road, rail, trail) 2:50:00  35.0 mi (4:51 / mi)
Such easy weather to get outside:) another gorgeous day! Not much wind this morning and not hot , just pleasant. Drove up to RR place with Goose an cleft him there for his strength workout whole I rode my mt bike. Rode along Finnerty with a short stop to chat with Bash. Then got on trails behind her house and over to Palgrave Forest where I did a short loop. Got back on Duffy's down to Albion and rode the pine section and then the northeast hardwood hills. Conditions were awesome. Surprisingly, no tress down in that section after Friday's storm. Saw lots of wildflowers: tiny pink spring beauties, bloodroot and ferns unfurling,, patches of bright yellow trout lily turbans, Dutchman's breeches, and the first trilliums! And lots of painted turtles in the wetlands their shells like shiny coins spread along the logs. Then I climbed up the single track above the pool and man there was arboreal carnage! So many big tress down. Some cracked and snapped near near the bottom, some uprooted. Many across the trails. It was like a war zone. Slow going up there with a bike. So sad. But otherwise a wonderful ride.
