Yep, snow crocus. Squirrels around here love to eat the bulbs but I've seen a few gardeners (or forgetful squirrels) that have planted the bulbs into their lawns. The blooms are usually gone long before mowing is needed.

Edited to add that I'm in central Ohio, not Oregon. I won't begin to see spring flowers here for another 2 weeks.

A local B&B:



Loosely translated:
  • rest spot
  • bicycle pump
  • toilet
  • tea
  • coffee
  • cake & candy
  • charge battery
  • water
  • soda
  • open (during daylight hours)
  • coffee stop
And more implicitly: we think it is OK to crucify an old bike and let it rust away.

What's a thread like this without a "bike in front, Mt Fuji somewhere in the background" shot?

Now that I'm wider awake, I notice that last night's gimping was even cruder than I'd feared, with the "curves" mangled for just one rectangle within the larger rectangle. Oh dear.

Also from yesterday's ride:



From the nation that brought the world Konmari. (This is not a temporary arrangement. This front yard has been like this for years. Its enrichment continues.)


Outside the "Pignic" café, where the piglets (and my frame, stem and saddle) are British, or so we're told.


Looking back down, on the way up to Kōbu tunnel


Right then, here you are: the obligatory photo of that mountain (from https://goo.gl/maps/R8nWkNzew4WaYKue9 )

The talus slope just before Kennebec Pass on the Colorado Trail. This is near the end of segment 28 if you are northbound.

I'm thinking you should be sharing more photos of your cycling adventures - that photo is epic

OK... this area had about 15 waterfalls that I could count. Only 5 are visible in this photo (the easiest to find is on the right). That dark cloud (part of the Colorado monsoon afternoon cycle) dumped on me about 20 minutes after this was shot. The chasm on my left goes down about 1500 feet and the mountains are easily that above me, being some of the 14ers of the San Juans. That night I slept on the opposite side of this chasm about 30 feet from that waterfall on the right.

Probably not too smart of me to take this photo, but I had never seen a coyote in my area.

They won't pay much attention to you unless someone has been feeding them. I was hiking a side trail and almost tripped over one bedded down. It was amazing.how quick we both jumped, lol, didn't know I could still move that fast.

Beautiful. Incredible. Awesome. Awesome because I am awed.

This isn't a scenic photo take from some roadside pull-over or destination parking lot. This is a scene from a trail that you had traveled on for some hours and days before the picture and some hours and days after the picture. So we get the snap shot, but we can envision the endeavor.

Absolutely Great!

I rode my mountain bike (Ti Jones Plus LWB, belt drive with Rohloff hub) to that location complete with food, camping gear and tools. The Colorado Trail has so much hike-a-bike that you wonder sometimes why you brought a bike. Its really hard!! But so spectacular.
