A beautiful day

          The poisen ivy along side the trail is turning red, warning you to look, don't touch.  It was a beautiful day for a ride.  The weather blessed us with low 80's and challenged us with a pretty good head wind at time.  We had a lovely ride.  The new trail now has some benches to rest on and we sat by the river for awhile and enjoyed the day.  The wood were cool and starting to smell of heady spices like fall.  Deer and wild turkey hurried out of our way as we rode along the gravel trail.

      

        The clouds were big and fluffy and the trees were just starting to turn giving you a hint of how pretty they will be in a week or two.

        In the river we saw a white pelican, not that common around here and the more common Canadian Geese.

         

          After 23.8 miles we ended up at the river in town.  It was a nice ride and the view from the river was pretty with sparkling diamonds on the water. 

   

Every ride is special because soon they will end.  Every day is special because who knows when they will end.

     We stored our bikes and went out to eat.  Our friend Gary gave me a couple of books to read.  So that is what I will do, finish this, go to bed and read a good book.   Night all.

How can you not love the midwest in the fall?  My favorite season.
