Saturday was wonderful for any number of events. Being on the road, yard work, heck, one could even drive to K.C. if one was so inclined. I do not know of many things that can compare to the worldly delight of 60-plus degree weather in January.
Take the first two choices, ride or yard work? Let’s do both! We started with cleaning up the back yard of the gum balls (again) and then took the seven bags of yard waste to the dump. In preparation of the coming snow I washed the truck and after lunch, we decided to ride the Frisco Highline Trail.
We took a detour from off of the Trail and went north on Westgate.
Along the way out, we met Bill Griffin of Evangel, a fellow cyclist and then went by James Meridith, training for his next marathon. Jan and I went a bit beyond the end of the asphalt and turned back toward Springfield. Lots of friendly folks out, all having a great day.
