With all the recent snow and bitter cold weather, I hadn't ridden in about ten days. There's a strong wind out of the south that isn't very pleasant today, but once I was down on the bottoms, the bluffs kept the wind at bay; in fact, I forgot how windy it was until I topped the hill you see in that last picture. The fields were pretty mushy, and that made Blue work hard. But I think he was glad to get out and about.
I'm not abandoning this journal; I simply intend to split my entries between here and Blogger. You'll find the Blogger link in the upper left-hand corner where it says, "My newest blogging home".
