I let my running legs and feet rest today, and did a short ride with a time limit, on streets and trails in the neighborhood. I made it up to the mountain and pushed my bike uphill so I could ride down the spine of one of the ridges. A short stretch of incline on otherwise sedate outing.
Clouds were the subject today. Well, they are most days, but especially today.
A while back I speculated that these tracks were caused by one of these pups, and today I saw a young coyote at dusk trotting downhill for dinner, and I would bet money it was one of those scrawny pups. It's strange getting to know certain wild animals; otherwise, wildlife tends to become an anonymous crowd, where each animal is interchangeable. I find it fascinating when it's not like that.
Distance was 8.03 miles, time 1:02 (moving 55:54), elevation gain/loss 829 feet, avg. speed 7.7 mph, and max speed 24.6 mph.
