Mothers' Day Trip

After a great rib BBQ at our house, we decided to grab the bikes and head out to a local trail for a ride. The trail is about 9 miles from our house and is gorgeous.
The weather was just perfect for a long ride, not real hot, just cool enough to make it nice.

We start riding and the trail is empty. We take it easy and stop quite a lot to get off the bikes and explore the ghost towns, side trails and just to rest. We ended up going 11 1/2 miles round trip. My legs were like jelly, but that's just a sign I need to get in shape.

While we were riding, we saw a HUGE bird flying around and when it got closer, we realized it was a bald eagle. I had seen them in zoos and aviaries, but never in the wild. It's quite a sight to see.

We stopped at a swinging bridge and crossed over. I do not do well on heights, so I was holding onto hubby in a death grip. The kids ran right across with no fear. Can't remember the last time I felt that free.

With the warm weather here, we'll be going on lots more day trips like this. Next weekend is the drive in and a baseball game. Hopefully, we'll get canoeing the following weekend and out camping.
