Happy Winter Solstice everyone!

I took a half-day off of work today, and our company is shut down all of next week and through January 2. After some last-minute Christmas shopping I got out on the bike for an hour.

The local rail-to-trail path has had a section barricaded off and marked "Path Closed" for the last month or so. I typically don't ride on the path so I never had a good chance to investigate. Today I decided to check things out, and...yeah...it definitely isn't passable.

Looks like the heavy rain we got a few months ago took out one of the bridges:
