Ride Pics for Stapfam (et al)

After weeks of rain and gray gloomy skies, I took the opportunity to get some pics of my sunny morning ride. I have placed them in a photobucket album, and hope I can get the link to work. So, for Stapfam, who has requested pics from the lot of us, and to any and all who, like me, enjoy ride pics -- here they are. Enjoy. P.S. This is mid-July and in North Texas and everything is GREEN. Tain't natural.
(edit) double click on the link below.

Thanks for the pics. The sign warning of snakes reminded me of one we saw when entering an island in Florida. It warned of rattlesnakes on the island

Yen, thank you for your kind words. I am fortunate to live on the fringes of DFW, so it doesn't take long to get out on the country roads. But remember, when you see pics of the high points of a ride there has always been some judicious editing out of the road litter, trashy trailers, habitat destroying new contruction (Everywhere! MacMansion anyone?) and junky cars and car parts used as yard art. And this is all side by side with little pockets of grace and beauty. Every ride is good. Every ride is beautiful. It is all in the details of the moment. It's all in where you look. I suspect your local rides are a lot of fun too, and really refresh your spirit or you wouldn't be a part of this forum and we would all enjoy riding with you and yours as well. Ride on!

And you wonder why I want to get you all to post pics. With Scenes like that- What are you doing sitting at the computer for. Get out and get more pics, and enjoy the ride to get out to them aswell.

Nice pictures. I was going to post some pictures tonight, but after your post, I think I'll wait.
I'm not sure mine will stand up to the comparison.
