Saw this about 1/2 way between Sublimity and Salem Oregon. Driver was trotting the horses around his pasture, but stopped & held them a minute when he saw me get out my camera. Gave me a wave & took off when I was done. Don

Asking is the polite approach.

I did see two owls mating at a local park but was on foot.

I was out on a ride just beyond the Illinois river and happened upon a large stainless steel sculpture.
Here's a shot of my bike leaned against it.....





Neat bit of art. Rather abstract but graceful.
It does require the viewer to back up a bit to really get a good look at the whole thing, though.

that sounds like a theme for another thread:
"rode a bike, got a ticket"

(I always wanted to climb the stairs in the legs of the arch, though. It would be fascinating, although that might wear off before I climbed the whole 630 feet)

Underfoot, hungry... they're always hungry.

Cheating, I knew what I would find. Rode my bike (rather than taking my truck) to a client's house, to clean the filters. Built it about 10 years ago.

Right now is hickory nut season here. Walnuts to follow shortly. Some the size of lemons.

My wife and I were just there last week, although not on bikes. It was the last stop on our vacation before returning to Ohio. The story of how the arch was built was fascinating, especially the tram to the top.

I've been to the arch a half dozen times and am always amazed at the engineering and the beauty.
The standard(?) documentary on the construction of the arch is this:

Definitely something to see if you are in the area. If you also have a bike, there are a variety of opportunities to ride too.

While out riding yesterday I saw a couple dozen items of clothing strewn along the side of the road concluding with this.
