After many days of severe thunderstorms the skies cleared and the wind died down making for perfect riding conditions. I wasn't going for a long ride, actually it was pretty short, but I mixed in some running. I'd occasionally hop off the bike, put one hand on the saddle and run while guiding the bike with the one hand. This is something that I saw an incredibly fit old man doing many years ago on the trail. When I can't run anymore I just hop back on the bike. The only downside is that I get continually asked if I'm having bike trouble.
This new structure along the trail is close to completion.
I initially thought it would be an office building until I saw the water fountain and cooling station/ outdoor shower.
The flowers appreciated the previous days rain. I was looking at this flower and messing with the camera when a cute little ladybug came in for a landing (I've seen green ones before). I didn't have my glasses on at the time. When I downloaded the photo my wife pointed out that it wasn't a ladybug. It's probably some foreign invasive species taking a breather before heading off to destroy somebody's garden. Either way, I'm dabbling in nature photography.
