Stretching the Legs: A Mixed Bag

The past couple of weeks has been a mixed bag when it comes to riding opportunities. Heat, sun, rain, wind, etc.

One ride home I watched three storm fronts. The Northern front stayed north. The front from the South West moved on down the valley – away from me. The front from the West gave me wings, gusting winds pushing my average speed up by 10km/hr. As I turned away from that section of road the wind became wet. A waterfall.

Aside from wings, my rides have given me other things like winged attacks from Mosquitos, black flies, and deer flies. Mixed blessings, the worst of these attacks occurred here.

Yellow Lady Slipper Orchids and Bunchberry.
