It's here in Salt Lake. 56 today and maybe rain tomorrow, but that's how it is in the Intermountain West. I agree about the snow pictures. I get PTSD from them.

It was nice, wasn't it.

I rode over to the rail trail and it wasn't anywhere near ready to ride yet. Right now its about 20% dry, 20% mushy, and 60% covered with snow and ice. Gonna take a while to melt it completely as it was packed down by snowmobilers for months. Was only able to ride about a 1/4th of a mile down it. But it felt great to be back on it. Got off of my bike and hiked down the trail a bit.

Unfortunately, our 3-day Spring is over for a few days. The next 6-8 days are colder, mostly overcast 40s with rain. Right now they are predicting snow next Saturday.

Another sign of Spring is finding out how terribly out of shape your legs are. I started up a hill, into the wind, and nearly died.
