We've had some crazy weather lately. Severe thunderstorms and heavy rain for several nights. But the days have been mostly sunny and warm. But they've started out kind of cool if you could get out to ride by 7:00am. I got a couple nice rides in over the weekend, including 50 miles on Saturday. I toured parts of Olathe, Lenexa, Stillwell and Overland Park.
During the last third of my ride I was on a country road with little traffic. As I neared a stop sign for a busier road I noticed an eagle climbing straight up with a smaller black bird darting around trying to get, or get back a thin, but long, snake. A couple weeks ago I was riding on a quiet Sunday morning and near the edge of town saw a bull walking down the sidewalk. It's owner was in a pickup right behind, pulling out to guide him towards the gate if he veered toward the street. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera along for either ride.
I've got great memories from things I've seen while riding tours in South Dakota, Kansas, or Colorado. But anytime you get on your bike and ride, if you're aware of the scenery, you might see something cool. And if you ride like me, you'll be going slow enough to appreciate it.
