Great Day for a Ride

"Tut tut, it looks like rain."

We knew we would head out on the trails today, but hiking or biking, we weren't sure until we reached the trail head and put our amateur weather watching skills to the test. 

The clouds seemed to part as a woodpecker tapping on the trees welcomed us today at the Tomasi trail head. When is the last time you have been out to this trail head? For us, it has been a while, and boy, the woods is a luscious green, sweetened with the scent of leaves, ferns, and wildflowers.

My younger son was quite taken by the daisies and devil's paintbrush (at least, that is what I've heard some refer to it as; perhaps orange hawkweed?) scattered throughout the River Trail, while my older son just wanted to race to the creek to throw rocks and dip his toes into the water. 

We saw some fellow bikers out today enjoying the trails, as well as two slugs, three butterflies, and the aforementioned wood pecker.

It was a great day for a ride, and bonus, we didn't get wet (at least not from the rain, from the creek, however, is a different story).
