A little bicycle ride

The worst of the storms have abated leaving us with calm showers and faded sunbreaks. I can't remember the last time we rode bicycles. It feels like we missed the whole month of March - legs and lungs are working hard, but we aren't moving very fast. A shower catches up to us along the river then stays with us until we turn back toward town. On our last ride everything still had it's winter coat. Today everything is spring (and spring showers). 
The sun comes out and sets the shadows free
A couple weeks ago we rode by the diversion dam and water levels were as low as I've seen it in summer. Today the river is much higher. 
New pedestrian bridge along old river road. Photograph is a blend of two exposures from one image. I would have lost the sky without blending.
Old house. Are they restoring it, or tearing it down?
I love the stone chimney. 
We stopped by for a treat, but they were closed!!
Is that an accusatory expression?
"You took THAT BIKE for a ride!!!???

  1. Glad you got to go on a bike ride today! The photos are very nice Kari. The blended one is especially nice. Your new Ninja does look lonely! :)

  2. It looked like a pretty good trade off Kari! Love the photos. The bridge is great. I took a photo of one similar this weekend. Hope your weather is improving...more riding is a good thing!

  3. Hi Mike,
    Thanks, Yes it's always nice to get out on two wheels of one sort or another.

    Thanks Eve,
    I think our weather will be a little better later this week - though I thought the weatherman was waffling a bit on the forecast.
