Bike ride in the forest
I was going to go up and work on the spring today, but Barry drove in with his truck and motorbike in the back.
So, I got my gear and joined him for a ride in the forest today.
We rode through these wild flowers still blooming.
We got stopped by this log across the road. Barry tried to move it, but it took both of us to move this one as it was heavy.
It seemed a bit smoky out today, looking south. It was supposed to be hot today, but there was a good cool breeze blowing, so it was real nice out.
We stopped here so Barry could sample the spring in this area.
But first we had to move this downed tree out of the way to get to the spring.
We stopped at this spring, the one I just started to work on and this is the one I was going to work on today. Barry was sampling all the springs on the hill today.
We were over on my cousin’s place and stopped to remove this old rotten log. Lucky it was rotten and light so we were able to move it.
We made it up to our rest spot and took a good break.
After that, we took off for some more riding.
We rode around a bit and then stopped here at our main spring that is used for water for our houses.
On the way home, we stopped at Tom’s garden to see what was growing. We were thinking about some peaches, but they were still too green.
We headed for my house from there and Barry took off for his home and I went in for a nap.
I took it easy for the rest of the day.
Late in the day, I rode on over to put Tom’s chickens away for the day. They were on the roost. I collected the eggs and locked them in for the night to keep the predators away.
