Feels Like Spring

Today felt a lot like spring in Colorado.  Faced down 15 mile + head winds, moved a couple of snakes off the bike path who were sunning themselves – cleverly disguised as sticks – great for avoiding prey, not so great for avoiding bike tires.

The geese and ducks are pairing up, and the former are getting much more aggressive toward cyclists.  I had to dodge more than one male who tried to attack my leg as I rode by.  All in all a great ride today with another scheduled for tomorrow.

If you haven’t stepped outside to see the full moon, take a moment, moon-rise was stunning.

I’m pretty sure the photo above is one of the osprey returning to nest.  Blurry closeup below.  He was a big guy with a white fluffy chest.  A bit far away for me to clearly identify.
