I enjoyed a very leisurely 32 kilometer bike ride. This babe bought a new pair of biker pants with expectations of having an opportunity to ride in colder temperatures as long as the snow stays away. I tried them out today! I love them! They're keepers! The only thing, it was a little too warm today for them! I was so over dressed for this ride.
I followed the Nose Creek Pathway to the Zoo and stopped to watch these fellows for a bit. I couldn't help but feel sad for the tiny little elephant that lost it's battle with life yesterday. Another sign that hiberanation time is soon upon us, is this fat bushy grey squirrel. He looked ready to explode and was not very quick in motion which is why I was able to get such a great shot.
I veered off in another direction hoping to head towards the Glenmore Reservoir but detour signs were plentiful and the route was taking me places I would rather not go, so did a u-turn and followed the Elbow River for awhile. Do the ducks go south? These ones were having a grand time!
Being the optimistic person that I am, my bike is not going to the basement yet. This coming weekend is a four day one for me and my hopes are to ride again!
