Seen on the ride: Tuesday, July 26

"How fast was I going?" I yelled.

"19," he said. "But you were slowing down there at the end."

I think he was being generous.

Plus, it was downhill.

Also seen on the splendid morning ride:

  1. Maybe he was, but still... You don't want to go too fast! Burrowing owls--what a treat to see their long-legged and wide-eyed selves!

  2. Susan, I've counted a total of 7 owls at that park this year. That's a pretty healthy number.

  5. That is a healthy number of burrowing owls. It's nice to think they're thriving in at least parts of their range...

  6. Susan--I wouldn't say they are thriving here. The prairie dog populations certainly haven't been, and the two are connected. However, this particular town is still around, and it pleases me to see the owls there each time I ride by.
