Building some new single track after work. I spent 8 hours breaking the rock up and I still have a bit more to do. The trail is just roughed in right now, it will be graded much nicer to take care of water before cyclists are allowed on it The rotten log is just there to hold the material back. I will probably spend another 4 hours or so fortifying it with actual stone.

Almost two new miles total to be built thanks to the blessing of the powers at be at NYS DEC. It's gonna be a busy summer.

Not strictly to the rules, (I didn't take the photo) I suspect, but well worth a look:



While Scott Brierley was on a tour at West Midlands Safari Park, located in Worcestershire, England, he managed to drop his phone next to the African elephant enclosure. After Brierley was told to not exit his car, Latabe grabbed his phone, presumably thinking it was food, and in doing so managed to capture quite a selfie. After his phone was returned to him by keepers at the park, Brierley shared that he might be in possession of the world’s first “elfie” — an elephant selfie.

One of my favorite photos is one my Father took in Ashland, ME, circa 1942. It's a pair of horses pulling a plow, with the sun setting behind them. I get up to the Sandwich, NH fair and love to watch the horses work, pulling and twitching. The teams doing the pulling are just so spirited!

Watching the sun set over his cattle pasture a relative once told me "This why I farm; this is my office." 'Nuff said.

Maine is something else.

Many moons ago Peter Ustinov did a recording Grand Prix du Roc. This reminds me of the line "I am the observer, not you." A hysterically funny recording for those familiar with the personalities of 1950's Formula I, for others, not so much. It is (at least was) back in print.

Sooo, that's a bacon flight...

And a bike pic for good measure I suppose:

Yesterday was a good day. Not pictured is a burger (three of them actually) made by an old lady that had been manning the griddle for 27 years. It was one of the best I've had in a long, long time. Top 10.

Which distillery is this? I'm guessing the barrels hold some nice Kentucky bourbon...

Heaven Hill. Yep, that rickhouse holds 20,000 barrels of nectar. I believe they have a little over 50 rickhouses in 4 locations.

The Williams Lake Classic is tomorrow, pre-riding today.

I rode down the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail from Kingston and then played around for a bit. Techy Techy stuff. And, of course, the cave....

I took the kids to the Gilbert Stuart museum today to see a grist mill and go for a hike.






We saw a Black crowned night heron perched on a rock in the middle of the stream.

Tested out the new Wald basket on my Raleigh Superbe yesterday. Damn thing's huge, can now fit the daughter's own little bike and everything needed for a picnic at the park (or in this case, a trip to the café where she can ride around in the courtyard), definitely need a steering stabilizer though.
