I took a random day to myself and went for a ride, hopefully to find some dirt roads and see more of the northwest corner of the state. I was also hoping to catch Nature in her early spring glory but apparently I was too early. Here’s what I did find, however.

The day was perfect and I enjoyed the time outside. The trees weren’t even hinting at being green and the bee hives were silent from the distance. It looked like I was going to have to come out again in a few weeks and see what had progressed.
