some pics, starting off with a shadow selfie:
|okay, have to walk this section|
I took a meandering route from the Bowl and Pitcher - Trail 25 to 7-Mile then a trail going west, eventually turning back towards and crossing 7- Mile Rd, to Deep Creek parking area, down State Park Drive then back across 7-Mile Rd to a Trail that leads back up to Inland Rd. I think it's one of those Trail 25-but-not-Trail 25 trails. I'm going into some detail so I can remember, because this time, before I reached Inland Rd, I saw a trail off to the left I hadn't seen before, heading down the ridge. A new to me trail. Looked promising so I took it.
Coming back from the B&P campground area, I can never decide if it's easier and/or quicker home to ride up to Merkel, or to ride Aubrey White to Downriver golf course. Sometimes I haul the bike up a the side of the hill on a trail near the water treatment plant up to NW Blvd. I opted to do that, and found yet another new to me trail that was less steep than my normal one. Ended up not being quicker as I came across a herd of deer that I waited for, not wanting to spook them.
|might be able to make out a deer in the middle of the pic,|
cautiously eyeing me.
Finally made it back home after waiting them out.
<insert abrupt ending here>. it's late.
