I get on my bike and take the dogs for a run pretty regular. Not every day, but often enough to have some interesting pictures. These are from this year. They’re from as early as April 1st, and the last two are from this morning. They’ve been “fixing” the road I ride on this year so some days I seem to spend more time dodging dump trucks than I do peddling, but it’s been a good year.

Nothing growing yet.
Hay is going to need cutting soon.
Some stretches just go fallow.
You can just see a heron way back there.
The road runs right beside Laughery Creek.
Water is high again, but there are leaves on the trees this time.
This is where I turn around and head back.
Bear Creek is running high.

Someone else is using the road too.
Sometimes there are unforeseen obstacles.
Really tearing up the hillside.
This flood caused a dam of sorts across Laughery Creek when Bear Creek blew out.
Some day the dogs and I have company. One even forgot his bike!
They’re done with this part of the hill anyway.
Bear Creek is a pretty shade of clear green.
Sediment left when the creek dropped.

Summer flowers decorate the bank.
