It was a bracing 22 degrees F with a north wind (not a problem on the way out) under sheer, thin clouds at 7:30 this morning as I headed on Shadow to Meadowbrook Park.
Stopped at the rabbit-statue bridge and looked back toward Windsor Road to see hints of green.
Red-winged blackbirds claimed their territories, which definitely said “spring.”
From the Freyfogle overlook, not much green could be seen.
Then rode by the woods along McCullough Creek,
noticing the dead trees.
Headed north on Race Street toward Home.
There was a tremendous number of squirrels under the oaks along Race Street; here are two (they tend to disperse when a camera is trained on them.)
It’s getting to have been a while since this trip, but the odds are good that my fingers were cold and was glad to be back to warm them.
