One Week Left

Pine Creek Gorge to North
This is the north-looking view into the Pine Creek Gorge from the park. There in the unseen distance is the start of the Pine Creek Rail to Trail. Next Sunday I will be there starting my two-day 60 mile ride. Hopefully next Monday's post will be something from down there at the bottom of the gorge.

Don't Tread Near This Guy

A rattlesnake in a glassed in cage at the Quarry Hill Nature center in Rochester, MN. He looks sleepy, but I wouldn't trust him.

Two Weeks Away

Pine Creek from Bridge
No, this isn't part of the Pine Creek trail, but it is Pine Creek just before it enters the West Branch of the Susquehanna near Jersey Shore, PA. In two weeks I will be finishing up the Rolling Toward 60 along the Creek just north of here.

Puerta del Sol

This is the heart of the city, the center of Spain. It is km 0 the center of the Spanish radial road system. This picture shows a protest in the plaza, but I liked the mix of colors and blurs and water.
