Fall Weather

Three of us showed up at noon for an unofficial WIN walk. We headed onto the West Ridge ski trails to the "T" field before heading back. On the way back, I decided to head down to lower campus on the Baseline trail and was pleasantly surprised to see a lot of work being done on the trail. It has been difficult to walk on especially with all the rain this summer. Many of the really wet areas now has landscaping fabric with lots of wood chips on top. They are doing a great job getting the trail more useable in the Spring & Summer. Anyway, I followed the trail all the way to Ballaine Lake before heading back to Wood Center to grab some lunch. Just a bit under 6 miles with an average speed of 3.8 mph. Nice walk, beautiful weather and dry feet. Not much to complain about. This evening, I needed to run some errands so I tacked a nice bike ride on at the end. There was a little bit of rain but I had a great ride. I'm not looking forward to putting the bike in storage again. Riding has been a wonderful diversion and I should have done this years ago. I need to head up to Barrow next week so no riding then. Hopefully, it will stay warm for a little while longer so I can get in a few more rides this year.
