    It reminded me of Colorado

    I had to leave the house early this am to get to an organized ride 30 miles from my house. The sky was clear blue and the sun was just coming up pretty good. Plus it is was a record breaking 41 degrees for May 25th. Once the sun got higher the temperatures became more comfortable. It reminded me of crawling out of my tent and riding on Ride the Rockies early in the morning.....just two weeks from this weekend!!
    Ride your Ride!!

    Well I can tell you it's absolutely beautiful here in CO, I went fishing today at Deckers, and rode my bike. Maybe you should just come out and stay, you might be happier.

    Here I thought I was done with cool/cold weather gear and had to break them out again yesterday(and maybe today too). Yesterday I started out around 50, low humidity, with sustained 17mph winds and 24~30mph gusts(just lovely).

    1.) The political note was a passing comment.
    2.) It should interest you since he moved the budget completion of most state trails programs to 2030 and beyond

    It was much nicer out here in Spokane area today. Just took arm warmers but they stayed in the pockets all day. That should be a sign that you guys out east and especially those in the midwest start getting a break.

    Saturday and Sunday were miserable up here in the North Country. 18" of snow on the top of Whiteface and 4 to 6 on the more souther peaks over 3000'. Mt Marcy got close to 2' of wet heavy snow. I was supposed to hike the upper great range with my daughter today but even though it is sunny out the runoff and mud will be incredible, stream crossing treacherous. I love waking up in the outdoors on a cool crisp morning, making a cup of coffee and watching the sun rise. Enjoy the trip.

    Well I spoke too soon and rode too short yesterday. Looks like rain today. I'll don the chilly wear and chance it anyway.

    Lots of snow in the higher Colorado mountains the last couple of days. Lows in the 20's in Leadville, etc.

    By the end of the storm Whiteface had 3 feet of snow. Today it was almost 90. Go figure
